Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
Liz Schmitt was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and dedicated teacher for over 27 years. In November of 2015, Liz was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, at age 63. She bravely fought the disease for ten months, suffering through many difficult rounds of chemo. She is dearly missed by so many family members, friends, colleagues and students, but especially by her husband, Frank. We have created this team in her memory to walk in her honor and raise money in the fight against this disease.
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.
