Journal entry by Barbara Bendlin

On May 4, David, Andrea, two of our friends, and I will participate in Purplestride, a walk held in Madison to raise money for education and research about pancreatic cancer. Since the first walk in 2008, PurpleStride has been the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s most powerful vehicle for fundraising and awareness. Each year, in more than 50 PurpleStride events across the country, survivors, families, researchers, caregivers and others touched by pancreatic cancer come together to rewrite the future of this deadly disease. 

If you would be interested in making a donation to support our team as we walk Purplestride, please copy and paste this address into your web browser.
