Welcome to My Personal Page

Help Melissa raise $300.00

Thank you for visiting my page. I will be participating in this PurpleStride 5K in memory of my stepdad Art Candelaria Jr. and to honor all the current patients, survivors and loving family members of survivors and victims. I have seen first-hand that, while each patient has their own individual battle, none of them fight alone. Hope during the battle is as important as the treatment.

Some information about Pancreatic cancer:

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.
