Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride.
We lost Gramma Chris (as Rylan, our daughter calls her) in 2013 and not a day goes by that we don't miss her. From the day of her diagnosis to her passing it was less than two months. That minimal time doesn't allow anyone to form a plan for treatment let alone deal with the gravity of a late stage pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
Christine never had the time to gather any options and I refuse to sit by (as did she) to let other families be struck with this lightning bolt and have no options for fighting such a virulent disease.
Gramma Chris is our inspiration for participating in PurpleStride and by making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
Please make a donation today and help us reach our fundraising goal!
One of my fondest memories of that terrible chapter in our lives, was the tremendous outpouring of support, donations and kind words you all offered - it brought us all to tears and still does! We love you and thank you for your ongoing support!
