As you know, I lost my Mom to Pancreatic Cancer two years ago this August. By raising money and awareness for Purple Community I am doing what I can to help fight this nasty disease called Cancer.
When donating to Purple Community, your efforts go further. Thanks to a generous endowment from Jay and Betty Van Andel, every dollar of every donation goes directly to the cause — that’s 100% HOPE!
Research is expensive and government funding of scientific research is at a historic low. It currently takes more than 10 years and a billion dollars to bring a new drug or treatment from the laboratory bench to a patient’s bedside. 100% of all the funds I raise will go directly to Van Andel Institute scientists who are studying more than 20 different diseases, including:
Aging Asthma Alzheimer’s
Neurofibromatosis type 1 Osteoarthritis Osteoporosis
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
