PurpleStride events raise critical funds and awareness about our 2020 mission and give local residents the opportunity to champion the promise of a brighter tomorrow.


Whether you volunteered during the last year, made a donation, attended an event, participated in a clinical trial, raised your voice on Capitol Hill or were there for someone facing pancreatic cancer, you made progress possible!


Let us help you by informing patients about your pancreatic cancer clinical trials. If you are conducting clinical trials, we want to know about your studies!

My superhero mother had always been my strongest advocate.  It was my turn to be hers… After her passing I wanted to do more so I set out to make a big purple splash one day in November and that grew into a national movement now known as Purple for a Purpose.

This is why I am fighting to advance research for pancreatic cancer…… My father, Minus John Leleaux, went to his dermatologist for what he thought might be an ingrown hair on his face.

In the fall of 2004, a local doctor told Ralph Cheney he had an “undiagnosed obstruction” in the tail of his pancreas after two bouts of pancreatitis.


Wage Hope and raise awareness with us today by wearing Purple for a Purpose, watching and sharing the video about this new worldwide initiative, and spreading the word over social media.
