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

We pride ourselves in our sound fiscal responsibility, and it is important to note that 85% of the money we raise goes towards our programs. When our organization was founded in 1999, the pancreatic cancer survival rate hovered at 5%. While it has slowly increased toward the current 8% five-year survival rate, pancreatic cancer remains the most lethal of major cancers. Our goal is to double survival by 2020 through our four focal areas: supporting patients, funding critical research, advocating change, and raising awareness.
