Help Angela raise $1,000.00

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. One of those people happens to be my dad, Larry Boike.

I've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer by both walking the 1 mile with my whole family, and then the 5k in his name. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

I made this promise to honor him by doing something I've never done nor ever been good at...running. when my dad passed I started training as a means of getting my emotions out and tiring myself in order to be able to sleep. Grief turns your world upside until you don't know how you will put one foot in front of the other.

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. There have been so many recent advances in treatment research, and now the big drive is to continue researching better screening methods. These things would have given my dad a chance, so now I continue to fight for his memory and so that no other family has to go through what we went through.

Purple ribbons aren't enough. Please join me in the fight today.
