Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

Advocacy

Advocacy provides opportunities for the pancreatic cancer community to take action and let Congress know that we are counting on them to prioritize lifesaving pancreatic cancer research to improve patient outcomes.

We are searching for an Advocacy Chair to recruit and leads other local volunteers interested in taking action against pancreatic cancer through government advocacy. The Advocacy Chair builds a committee covering key congressional districts to build relationships with members of Congress and their staff securing support for PanCAN’s legislative priorities.

Pancreatic cancer is currently the third leading cause of all cancer-related death in the United States - and impacts every state across the country. In order to rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer we need communities nationwide to join together and create a movement. This national movement needs your leadership and vision to continue to thrive and grow!

We invite you to join a dynamic group of volunteers in Colorado committed to changing the course of this terrible disease and getting more involved in their community.

If you are interested in expanding your skills, building meaningful relationships and truly making a difference in this fight against pancreatic cancer, please email: Natascha Martin at nmartin@pancan.org for more information!

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.

Description

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the only national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure. The organization raises money for direct private funding of research--and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network fills the void of information and options by giving patients and caregivers reliable, personalized information they need to make informed decisions. We create a sense of hope and community so no one has to face pancreatic cancer alone. The organization helps support individuals and communities all across the country work together to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
