Team #StridingForSteve is back — join us April 4th, 2020 for PurpleStride Phoenix!
In the Fall of 2016, one week before Thanksgiving, my Father Steven R. Lewis was diagnosed with Stage III Pancreatic Cancer. Three short months later, in the beginning of February 2017, he lost his valiant battle to the disease.
My Dad was a fighter — in every sense of the word. He overcame again and again throughout his sixty-four years.
We must continue to be courageous in his honor. What my Dad left behind was a beautiful legacy of walking each day as our true selves, having a laugh while facing life’s challenges, and being honest to a fault — but what also remains is more to be done. Since he is no longer waging war on his own battle, we must do what we have to do to #DemandBetter for this disease. I am bringing Team Striding For Steve back for our third annual PurpleStride Phoenix, the walk to end Pancreatic Cancer, so someday no family has to face the same devastation we have with Pancreatic Cancer to blame.
Every dollar received (whether by joining our team or tax deductible donation to our team) ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.
