Why We Wage Hope Every Day
Pancreatic cancer has surpassed breast cancer to become the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. While the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer increased to 9 percent, it is still the lowest survival rate of any major cancer. Our challenge is clear: We must double survival by 2020.
