Affiliate Chair

“I feel strongly that it's my mission to be an advocate, a voice, because so many pancreatic cancer patients don't get the opportunity to do so. So many wonderful people have come into my life, whom I never would have met otherwise. It fills my heart with joy when new volunteers say ‘I want to become part of this group, and make a difference, like you are!’ Our affiliate has made an impact building awareness, fund raising, and equally important, creating a real community for survivors, families and friends.”

   - Maija, seven-year survivor and volunteer

The Inaugural PurpleStride Miami was an Amazing Success!

PurpleStride Miami 2015 was an incredible day! Thank you so much to all of the volunteers, donors, participants and survivors that made the event a huge success. Because of your efforts, we had more than 500 people participate and raised $95,000 for the fight against pancreatic cancer! We'd also like extend our gratitude to EnvisionRx for being our gold sponsor and Team Robert and the Marseilles Hotel for being our local silver sponsors. Thank you everyone!
