Welcome to My Personal Page
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.
I'm participating this year in honor of a family friend, Zonnie Diane McDonald. Everyone called her Diane. I wish I could have met her, but she died to young. My cousin shared her strong and outgoing personality with me. She was a second mother to so many. She always thought she couldn't have children. However, she had her miracle baby in 1986. Only two short years later, she began to get sick. After being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, her family came together to help out and spend time with this amazing woman they all loved so much. Diane passed away on November 4, 1989.
Diane has been missed by so many, and she isn't the only one. The friend I walk with in this "Walk to End Pancreatic Cancer" has lost two aunts, Linda and Teri, to this deadly disease.
I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
