Mission Statement

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is fully committed to providing the most comprehensive set of programs and services to fight this very difficult disease. Our commitment and passion are driven by our mission: to advance research, support patients and create hope for anyone facing pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the United States. This year, nearly 44,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and more than 37,000 will die from it.

RESEARCH: To date, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has awarded 66 grants at biomedical research institutions throughout the US, with a total investment surpassing $10 million. http://pancan.org/

GET INVOLVED: Thousands of Pancreatic Cancer Action Network volunteers across the country are taking action to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. http://pancan.org/volunteer

PATIENT SERVICES: Since 2002, Patient Central has provided information and resources to nearly 60,000 patients and families. http://pancan.org/

ADVOCACY: With a strong presence in Washington, DC, we actively take our fight to Congress by continually working with elected officials about the need for increased spending for pancreatic cancer research. http://pancan.org/takeaction

PURPLESTRIDE Boise is a 5k walk/fun run which is the signature event of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Each year, in communities across the country, tens of thousands of people participate in more than fifty-six PurpleStride events, including PurpleStride Boise. These events are critical in raising awareness and funds that advance research and support patients and loved ones with a promise of a better tomorrow.

Volunteers are need in advanced planning as well as day-of-event. Opportunities in logistics, entertainment, advocacy, hospitality, marketing, recruitment, and sponsorship are all available. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is blazing new trails in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Join us for PurpleStride Boise and together we will continue to rewrite the book on how to fight this deadly disease.
