Strider Stories 

It was by pure chance that I went to the emergency room one day in May. Who knew what I thought was “gas pain” would change my life forever.

In 1989, Todd Horne lost his mother to the disease. Then in 2015, Todd was diagnosed with stage II pancreatic cancer.

Editor’s Note: Todd lost his fight with pancreatic cancer, but his story continues to inspire others to Demand Better for patients and their families.

We stride because it's what "Papa Z" would have done. Creating Team Papa Z has been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Special Performance by Erin Willett

Along with songwriters Liz Russo and Tova Litvin, for The Voice star, Erin Willett, helped co-write her latest release, “Hope’s Alive” to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. More than a dozen survivors and caregivers joined her at the recording studio to be part of the chorus and are featured in the music video. Please consider purchasing the song, as all proceeds up to $1 million will go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. “Hope’s Alive” is available for download on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play and Tidal. Learn more.

We stride to make sure that other people have a chance, because a five year survival rate of 9 percent is unacceptable and because it's what "Papa Z" would have done.
