4 weeks till PurpleStride

Well folks, it has been crazy in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network world... Here in Cleveland we have so much going on this summer... Of course we have PurpleStride Cleveland coming up in less than 4 weeks... Ed's All Stars are rocking it! We have raised over $3,000 at this point, but I would be delirious if we hit the $5K mark again this year! No donation is too small... ... Join us for this incredible day of hope and inspiration and give the next generation a cure!  Ed's All Star Dream Team would love your support! Just think - if 10 people who read this donate $10 - That $100 will make a difference!

Personally, I will be traveling to Washington, D.C. June 25 & 26 for Advocacy Day and support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network while representing Ohio... Learn more here:

You can call your State representatives on Tuesday, June 26 from the comfort of your home and help change the future! It really doesn't get any easier than that.

We are also gearing up for Purple at Progressive, a day of awareness with the Cleveland Indians! Sunday, August 26 against the New York Yankees at 1:05. This will be another Cleveland milestone in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. I am beyond excited to bring our fight to major league baseball!   Click on the link to see more details & order your tickets:

And lastly, on September 30, 2012 ... It will be our PurpleLight Vigil of Hope to honor all who battle, have won their battle and to honor those that have lost their battle to this Living, Breathing Monster. We are considering the Tremont Area in Cleveland at this time, which will make for a beautiful setting to remember our loved ones!

On a personal note, the Kid will make her Confirmation on Wed. and fulfill her promise to Ed to complete her sacraments.   Our church has traditionally confirmed in the 10th grade, which actually had been kind of nice - as these kids really are "young adults".  After this year, they will switch to 8th grade, which is more traditional - but I loved seeing all the Kids class mates from St. Mary's and it was nice for them to reconnect as they have all gone to so many different high schools.  She had an outstanding year in school and will officially be a Junior as of tomorrow!  Now she just needs to get a job to supplement that baby-sitting income!

Happy summer folks... I miss Ed every day and will fight the battle for him, which was what he asked of me... And I am glad to do it! MK
