Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The walk to end pancreatic cancer.


"I participated in my first PurpleStride just six months after my diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, and was honored to give the survivor speech. The incredible support of my team and all of the participants and volunteers at the event was humbling and inspiring. The fight against pancreatic cancer has a long way to go, but I am confident that with the work of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network we can change the statistics for pancreatic cancer."

Janelle McIntyre, PurpleStride Participant


"We stride to give other families hope, love, and peace in their fight. We also stride for solid diagnostic tools, and to educate the public on symptoms of pancreatic cancer so we can wage hope against this third most deadly cancer."

Sue Peerenboom, PurpleStride Participant
