Help Gary raise $3,500.00

We reached our May 6th milestone goal of $10,000 thanks to team members hard work. We are not yet done though. We've raised our goal to $17,000 because we feel that it can be achieved within the number of days until PurpleStride Detroit. We are looking for your help in achieving this new goal.Also, I reached my original goal of $1,000 and raised my goal to $3,000 but want new donations to go under one of the team members to help them reach their goal. Making donations thru a Team member is the best way to help them reach the goal they have set.

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 was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 13, 2017, had a 9 hour surgery January 10, 2018 and am currently receiving Chemotherapy. I want to win the battle, I have HOPE and I want others to have the same HOPE. Funding research for a cure is how I want to help give HOPE to others.

Family and friends rallied around me to help me overcome fear, anxiety and despair. I want to become counted in the 9% who are survivors. I want pancreatic cancer research to continue to make advances that will raise the survival percentage even higher. New remedies from research will help all of us. Please make a donation through ourTeam, Gary's Gang, via one of the Team Members.

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?
