I lost my husband of thisdevastating disease on May 10, 2012, just hours before what would have been our 15th wedding anniversary. Instead of planning a romantic dinner, I was planning his funeral. My husband was a vivacious, fun loving teacher and coach prior to his cancer diagnosis. I watched him transform from a healthy, fit beautiful man to a skeleton that eventually lost his ability to walk, talk and breathe on his own.

I lost my husband of thisdevastating disease on May 10, 2012, just hours before what would have been our 15th wedding anniversary. Instead of planning a romantic dinner, I was planning his funeral. My husband was a vivacious, fun loving teacher and coach prior to his cancer diagnosis. I watched him transform from a healthy, fit beautiful man to a skeleton that eventually lost his ability to walk, talk and breathe on his own. He fought hard, rarely complained and even in his final days continued to inspire those around him. He was only 48 years old when he died, leaving behind myself and his four incredible children. I refuse to have my husband die in vain. I am making it my mission to spread awareness for pancreatic cancer and make a difference in this world. Maybe if society knew a little bit more about pancreatic cancer, maybe a test for early detection can be found. I am joining the fight to double the survival rate by 2020. I do this for my husband, Peter Gonnella.
