We are survivors, fighters and pancreatic cancer destroyers!
Our Mission is Simple.
Pancreatic cancer has been dubbed a “death sentence” and anyone who survives is a “walking miracle.” We see it differently. We’re alive on a mission. We will destroy pancreatic cancer!
OUR PROMISE IS GUARANTEED.
We will fund and advance research and clinical trials that lead to earlier detection and improved treatment options, whether patients are facing stage I, IV or anywhere in between.
OUR GOAL IS WITHIN REACH.
We will establish Hope and a Plan for all pancreatic cancer patients. The hope comes from the research and clinical trials performed under a true collaborative model. The plan supports today’s patients in quickly developing a strategy to win the battle against pancreatic cancer.
Committed to improving pancreatic cancer statistics
Partnering with premier doctors, researchers, hospitals and other foundations is how we’ll succeed in changing the direction of pancreatic cancer. Join our mailing list to stay informed of the work we’re supporting and be the first to know about our pancreatic cancer “wins.”

Get involved — Pancreatic cancer is everyone’s fight.
More than one million people have died from pancreatic cancer in the last two decades alone. Not only is this tragic, it’s unacceptable. It won’t be easy, but we’re committed to saving lives through earlier detection and improved treatment options.

Inspiring Victory Stories—Proof that hope is alive
Yes, pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It’s also the only cancer with a single-digit, five-year survival rate. And, it often returns even after remission has been declared.
But hopeless? Never.
Howard is living proof that surviving pancreatic cancer is possible, but he knows he’s one of the lucky ones. It’s his mission to support the research that could lead to the first-known method of early detection.
Mark is enjoying every day since he won remission for the third time from pancreatic cancer. Desiring to help others going through this battle, he wrote about his journey in his newly released book Gel Strong.
