Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

In February of 2018, my husband, Jim Waeltz, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The last seven months have been challenging times, but Jim has completed his rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. The last test results provided us with some positive news that has been extremely encouraging! Jim's attitude from day one has been that he will beat this cancer! The picture tells it all- look at the smile on Jim's face holding James on his shoulders! It was taken the day after we were given the news that Jim had a tumor in his pancreas! He amazes me every day and gives me strength! But, for any person diagnosed with this disease, community awareness, new research and treatment options are desperately needed! Please help us by registering to walk with our team, #WAELTZSTRONG, on November 3rd or by making a contribution in Jim's name! All donations will go directly to PurpleStride!

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.

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. 

With our sincere gratitude,

Jim & Monica
