It seems like cancer is everywhere you turn and everyone has a story and a loss which is heartbreaking and cruel. We are no different. We lost an exceptional and irreplaceable person. My mother was beautiful, intelligent, funny, witty, and kind. She loved and is loved unconditionally. Pancreatic cancer snuck up on her and took her away from us.
l lost my mother to pancreatic cancer on April 1, 2016. Each day that goes by doesn't get any easier but I can't just sit back either. Purplestride gives me the opportunity to make an impact, however small it is, to change the outcome for others. Maybe one day pancreatic cancer won't be a death sentence for so many. So I'm doing something, to help in some small way so other families don't experience the heartache that my family has.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen 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. Will you 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 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.
