Discover the many ways you can bring hope to the pancreatic cancer community and create more awareness in yours.
Be an Advocate
The five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 9 percent. And most pancreatic cancer research funding comes from the federal government. To double survival by 2020, we must increase federal funding for cancer research.
When you speak up, Congress delivers. The Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act and 21st Century Cures Act became laws because of our advocates. Learn about our legislative priorities, and urge your elected officials to support greater research funds to save more lives.
"Volunteering with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is unlike any other volunteer experience I have had. You are truly appreciated for the work you do and you can see right then and there the hope you're instilling in your fellow volunteers and the pancreatic cancer community."-Elizabeth Canuas, Phoenix Affiliate Volunteer Stories
