Welcome to My Personal Page
In Nov. 2017 I lost my husband to stage 4 pancreatic cancer at age 54. Now a friend has been diagnosed with stage 4 disease also and is fighting hard for more time with her family. This is a devastating disease, many times sneaking up on people who have very few symptoms and are in the prime of their life. It has the lowest 5 year survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9% for all stages but <1% for stage 4. It has the third highest death rate of all cancers. This deadly disease is stealing our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.
I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today.
Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients by helping fund research, promote molecular profiling of tumors and offer resources to patients and their families. By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
