Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
Please help support PanCan’s vision of doubling pancreatic cancer survival by 2020!
Our team is comprised of different families who have been touched by pancreatic cancer and we are looking to make a difference!!
Just four years from now, pancreatic cancer is projected to become this country’s second-leading cancer killer. Now number 3, surpassing breast cancer, pancreatic cancer will climb in the ranking partly by becoming more common, but mostly because it is ferociously difficult to detect and treat.Pancreatic cancer has the lowest relative five-year survival rate of any major cancer- 9 %.
Historically, pancreatic cancer research has been underfunded. We know from the relatively high survival rates associated with breast cancer and HIV/AIDS, that federal research funding levels matter in the fight to find new cures and directly relate to improved survival rates. Did you know that the NIH budget is still nearly 18 percent below what it was in 2003?
The only way to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020- and go beyond- is through advancements in research. Innovative therapies are helping to make this vision become a reality, but there is still a great deal of work to be done.
Your donations will help to change these dismal statistics by funding research grants, advocacy efforts, patient support, and awareness activities coordinated by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCan).
PanCan is a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
When you give to PanCan, you can be sure that your donation is making a difference!
