When We Wage Hope — We Make Progress

Patient Services

Through our Patient and Liaison Services (PALS) program, we Wage Hope every day by giving patients and their families reliable, comprehensive information and resources about the disease, treatment options, clinical trials, diet and nutrition, and more, provided by a highly trained and compassionate staff — all free of charge. Learn more.

Community Outreach

Our volunteers are passionate, focused and relentless in their commitment to change the course of history for pancreatic cancer. These volunteers now support nearly 140 events each year, including our PurpleStride and PurpleLight signature events. If you believe it’s important to push boundaries and blaze trails, you’re just who we are looking for.  Are you ready to volunteer and Wage Hope? Learn more.

Scientific Research

We Wage Hope by developing and growing a comprehensive pancreatic cancer research community and working to provide the tools and resources this community needs to make scientific breakthroughs. Since 2003, we have awarded 110 grants totaling nearly $23 million to some of the most innovative and brilliant scientists doing pancreatic cancer research today. Learn more.

Government Advocacy

The federal government provides more dollars for cancer research than any private entity. With a strong presence in Washington, D.C., we actively take our fight to Congress by continually working with elected officials and holding an annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill to drive home the need for increased spending for pancreatic cancer research.
