Advocate for Federal Research Funding
Increasing pancreatic cancer survival depends on discoveries in research.
Why it Matters
The only way to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020 – and go far beyond – is through advancements in research. But 80 percent of all pancreatic cancer research funding comes from the federal government, which means that we need Congress on our side. Who influences Congress? You do!

We Need You!
You speak. Congress listens. Progress happens.
You play a big role in urging Congress to increase pancreatic cancer research funding. Last year, thanks to our volunteers, we secured the largest National Institutes of Health funding increase in 10 years and we got a bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives that, if passed in the Senate, will lead to more funding. The Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act is proof!
