Dad always had a big heart; one of the things he cherished was giving and helping others. He stressed the importance of education, serving others and being independent. He was the patriarch of his family and very protective of his children and instilled in his children a strong family identity.
Even when he was given the diagnosis of a terminal illness, he continued to give his time, energy and resources to others. Through his generosity, he has touched the lives of many people, young and old, and has been a role model of what servitude, compassion and love really look like.
In true “He-man” fashion, he battled his illness with dignity and grace. Even in his last hours, he maintained a positive attitude.
It is in his honor that our team, Moving Man's Army *, has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer.Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
* The team name, Moving Man's Army commemorates Dad’s CB radio handle “Moving Man” & his service to theU.S. Army where he was a decorated Viet Nam vet.
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.
Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.
