Shirley Nagelschmidt memorial page
Thank you for visiting my PanCan PurpleStride page.
My journey with PanCan began unexpectedly when my daughter Ann was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March of 2011 just as I turned 88. In those early years I was able to attend Purple Stride and walk short distances to support Ann in her fight.
Sadly, we lost Ann on December 30, 2014; however, our family decided that this horrible cancer that took Ann from us needed to be cured so we all continued. This year team All About Annie will walk at the Boston PurpleStride on November 5.
Losing Ann changed the last years of my life, and it is my hope that in the future no mother has to lose a child to pancreatic cancer.
I hope that you will make a small donation here in my memory.
