We Have a Passion for Purple!

In addition to sharing a mutual passion for consulting, our three senior leaders (Patti Weber, Grace Lynch, and Mark Weber) are known for their passion for creating awareness for pancreatic cancer.

Purple is the official color that represents pancreatic cancer, and the trio is known across the greater Charlotte region and beyond for their long-term advocacy for the the disease. In fact, their passion runs so deep that Patti, Grace, and Mark launched the nonprofit Charlotte Pancreatic Cancer Alliance community group last year to amplify their voices.

Shortly after forming the group, the trio wasted no time in joining the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition, a consortium of nearly 100 advocacy groups from 33 countries on 6 continents.

The World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition spotlighted the work of Patti, Grace and Mark in the October 2021 issue of its global newsletter. Learn more here.


This November It’s About Time

It is considered to be a rare cancer.

And yet, it is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the USA. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and Croixstone has joined forces with the Charlotte Pancreatic Cancer Alliance and the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to create awareness for the world’s toughest cancer. 

For Croixstone, the mission to create awareness is very personal.  Our CEO and co-founder, Patti Weber, lost her father to pancreatic cancer in 2005.  7 years later, our Managing Partner and co-founder, Mark Weber, lost his mother to the same disease.

Since there is no early detection for pancreatic cancer, it is important that you know the symptoms and risks associated with the disease. Please take just a few minutes and click HERE to learn the basics of pancreatic cancer symptoms and risks. Then take time to share your new knowledge with your family and friends. 

Your actions could save a life (even your own)!
