Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

As you know my wife, Mary, was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2017.  She lost her fight this April and we lost one of the bright stars in the universe. Mary was one of those people with the ability to touch many hearts.  We want to honor her memory, her legacy and her struggle and at the same time, raise money to defeat this terrible disease.   

We have started up Team Mary again for Puplestride 2018 in Philadelphia on November 3rd.  Please join us.  If you can't make that location but would still like to participate there are events all over the country you can participate in.  

If you can't make it but would still like to give a donation, you can donate directly through this page.  Any amount helps. Pancreatic cancer is one of the hardest to detect and deadliest cancers but, due to its relative rarity, it's charitable support lags behind many of the other forms of cancer.

Please hold on to Mary's memory!  She was a doer.  She never hesitated to jump in and help people. She would want all of us to help others that have this horrible disease.

Thank you!   We'll see you on November 3rd.

Tom and Family


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’ttake away our determination. 

Our team 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?

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. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
