Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers.
* The median survival rate is around 3–6 months after diagnosis, and yet the 5-year survival rate remains at less than 9% !!
This deadly disease has stolen too many wonderful people from this world, including our father; but it can’t take away our determination.
My sister has been fighting this disease about 2 1/2 years and is determined to continue! She's struggled through regular chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and has confidence that upcoming clinical trials will reveal the "cure" along with early detection modes for this horrible disease.
** But this vital research takes funding. That's why we've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride in Minnesota on September 14, the walk to end pancreatic cancer.Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
