Welcome to Dan and Debs Fundraising Page!
In July 2018, Dan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. It had already spread throughout his abdomen to his appendix, liver, colon, pancreas, gall bladder, stomach, intestines, upper and lower omentums, peritoneum, diaphragm, and spleen. Instead of telling us they were sorry like other hospitals and cancer centers had, Moffitt Cancer Center and Dr. Dineen took on Dan's case and in November 2018 he underwent cytoreduction surgery and HIPEC. Thanks to that life saving intervention, Dan is still here and welcomed his 3rd grandchild this year! We're pumped and ready to participate in our fourth Miles for Moffitt run this year - we're moving for what matters - love, courage, and finding the cure to cancer.
Research at Moffitt results in new clinical trials and new treatments that help improve the lives of those touched by cancer. Please join us in raising funds for patients, families, survivors, and caregivers by joining our team or making a gift to our fundraising page. Whether you can give $10 or $1,000, every dollar matters in supporting Moffitt's mission - to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Thank you for your support and being an important part of the Miles for Moffitt community!
-Dan and Deb Whalen
