About

Did you know that 80 percent of all pancreatic cancer research dollars come from federal funding? In order to make progress for cancer patients across the nation, we need to advocate for continued federal funding for cancer research.

It all starts with individuals in your community raising their voice and becoming an advocate for the pancreatic cancer community!

As the Advocacy Chair for the Connecticut Affiliate, you’ll meet with local and national political leaders and make an impact on the national political stage.

Help us take our message to Washington and tell Congress to dedicate more funding to pancreatic cancer research to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020!
