Dear Friends and Family, My Mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the fall of 2009. She was a healthy and active woman with no serious symptoms until she felt ill after a trip. Little did we know that she had a tumor slowly growing in her pancreas and our world was changed forever.
She began her fight against this terrible disease armed with knowledge, the love and support from friends and family, and a strong will to live. She fought a courageous battle against this cancer for two and a half years. Five years have passed since we lost her to pancreatic cancer and not a day goes by that we don’t remember her vow to make the most of everyday.
My family and I continue to Wage Hope in her memory and for a cure, by raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and participating in PurpleStride. Your gift will support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's world-class programs that are changing lives for all those affected by pancreatic cancer through research, advocacy, patient services and much more.
By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020. Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight. Thank you for your support!
