Our dad courageously battled stage IV pancreatic cancer for over 2 years and several chemotherapy treatments. He lost his battle on May 16th, 2019. In his memory, we would love to further assist with the mission of Project Purple because it was so comforting to our family throughout the stress of his battle. Bud's legacy is his family. He had an immense passion for sports, especially basketball. He was the rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of what was important - the simplicity of living a life surrounded by those you love. We feel blessed to have found Project Purple at an unsettled time of worry and concern with his diagnosis and to be given resourses of information and support. Our dad's fight was inspirational and he will be overjoyed to know people are working towards a cure for pancreatic cancer.
