About Pancreatic Cancer
Each year, more and more Americans will hear the words, “You have pancreatic cancer.” In 2022, an estimated 62,210 will receive this diagnosis, and 49,830 people will die from the disease. For all stages combined, the 5-year relative survival rate is 11%. Pancreatic Cancer is a formidable disease, recently rising to the 3rd leading cause of cancer death in the United States. It is expected to become the 2nd by 2030. There are no early detection tools. In spite of the number of people affected by this disease and a staggering mortality rate which is higher than all other major cancers, research funding is shockingly inadequate and has remained largely unchanged for the past 40 years. Pancreatic Cancer initiatives receive less than 3% of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) research budget.
Funding from organizations like ours is critical for key progressive research and treatment initiatives.
Our mission is to both raise money for pancreatic cancer research and patient programs, as well as make people aware of the funding needs.
