Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Over 145 Americans-family, friends, neighbors and colleagues, are diagnosed every day. The disease kills more people than breast cancer in the United States. We must rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer. Take action now to bring hope to the pancreatic cancer community by donating, raising funds or spreading awareness that of the major cancers, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate.
Support such groups as the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network who work for improving survival from pancreatic cancer by 2020.
Together, we can bring greater focus on the disease across the country, and rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer through:
  • More public awareness and visibility
  • Accelerated research
  • Increased funding for patient services for people battling pancreatic cancer
  • Clinical trials that match patient needs
  • Higher clinical trial enrollment rate
  • Doctors delivering best practices
  • Better detection tools and treatment options for patients
  • Year-round government advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill to ensure federal research funding as a national priority
Display purple this month and Wage Hope today in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
