Paint the Trail Purple (PTTP) was founded in 2018 to celebrate the hope and triumph over pancreatic cancer that Jean Loggia’s story represents. Jean was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January of 2013 and was quickly treated by the passionate team of doctors at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University. As one of the fortunate few, this wife, mother of 4, and Philadelphia native has been healthy and cancer-free since November of 2013. PTTP also aims to raise funds to support valuable research and patient treatment and honor those who have bravely fought and lost this terrible disease because we need more stories like Jean’s.
With help from donors like you, Paint the Trail Purple and its sister events hosted by Pancreatic Cancer Cure Foundation have donated over $330,000 to support pancreatic cancer research, treatment, and compassionate care programs!
