Cheyenne Goguen lost her father to pancreatic cancer years before working for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

Cheyenne Goguen lost her father to pancreatic cancer years before working for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

Cheyenne Goguen recently joined the marketing team at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network after serving as an intern years prior. It all started in her junior year of college when she was tasked with conducting an informational interview with someone working in public relations. Cheyenne knew exactly who she wanted to speak with – someone at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. She had a personal interest in the organization because six years earlier, her father had passed away from pancreatic cancer.

“I was 16 when he passed away, and I didn’t know how to handle the loss, but I knew I wanted to have a chance to fight back against the disease that took him.”

After her informational interview assignment, she asked if the team was looking for interns and was told, “Yes – we’d love to have you intern with us!”

The rest is history.

Cheyenne explains that the best parts about being an intern and now, being a staff member, are the people and the opportunity she has to interact directly with volunteers from every affiliate and all our Community Representatives. She is grateful that she gets to work with volunteers doing exactly what she is doing: fighting back.

“Everyone at this organization gives so much of their time and is extremely passionate and determined. It’s wonderful to work with people who are excited about being there day in and day out.”
