Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer


Join our PurpleStride team, Always Frank’s Supporters! Come walk or run with us on November 3. 

Two days before his 53rd birthday in 2011 Frank was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He fought hard with support from our three beautiful daughters, other family members, friends, co-workers, and wonderful healthcare professionals. We got him through the Whipple and through chemo and then a lot of radiation. He was able to be with us when Jennie graduated from college, and Catherine graduated from high school. We had the best Smuggs vacation that summer. After 14½ months of fighting that cancer he left us for a special place in heaven.

Since then Sarah and Jennie have gotten married, and our first grandchild will be walking with us for the first time this year. So, join us. Come run or walk with us. If you cannot join us that day then, please make a donation today and help us reach our fundraising goal!  

Please help our team support PanCan! Frank is relying on us now to help to learn more about this disease so that a cure can be found. Thank you.
