  • Are you organized and detail-oriented?
  • Do you enjoy meeting new people?
  • Would you like to develop connections in your community?

We would love to talk to you about an exciting volunteer opportunity! The Western NY Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is looking for Mission Committee members.

In this role, you will promote and implement PanCAN's mission to improve the lives of everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer. You will be part of a committee that spreads awareness about pancreatic cancer and PanCAN's efforts to improve patient outcomes. The ideal volunteer for this role has a passion for community! Training will be provided.


PanCAN volunteers raise funds and awareness year-round to support research and clinical initiatives, patient services, advocacy, and community engagement work. Our volunteers support us in a number of capacities, including social media, public awareness campaigns, fundraising, event planning, and government advocacy.

We need you because pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers; the five-year survival rate is only 12%. It is currently the third leading cause of all cancer-related death in the US. We need people like you to help us create a world where all patients with pancreatic cancer will thrive.

If you are interested in expanding your skills, building meaningful relationships, and truly making a difference in this fight, please respond! We'd love to have you join our vibrant volunteer community.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to take bold action to improve the lives of everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer by advancing scientific research, building community, sharing knowledge and advocating for patients.

Description

PanCAN was the first organization dedicated to fighting pancreatic cancer in a comprehensive way, and for more than two decades, we’ve grown a nationwide movement tackling the disease from all angles.

  • Research: We fund transformative research - everything from early detection to innovative new treatment approaches.
  • Patient Services: We provide information about treatment options, diet and nutrition, support resources and more, and we can answer all your questions along the way.
  • Advocacy: We work with thousands of grassroots advocates to urge Congress to increase federal research funding for pancreatic cancer, and we get results.
  • Community: Be part of our movement! You can volunteer locally, participate in a PurpleStride community event or host your own fundraiser.
