More than 64,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2023. That is 175 people diagnosed every day.
Pancreatic cancer is the 10th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 11%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. James was diagnosed in 2016 and lost his fight after only two years in May of 2018.
Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
On April 29, 2023, pancreatic cancer survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters will take steps together at 60 PurpleStride events across the nation to honor everyone affected by the disease.
PurpleStride is the #1 way PanCAN raises money to fight pancreatic cancer in a comprehensive way. Your participation and fundraising support essential research like the PanCAN Early Detection Initiative and vital programs like free support and resources from PanCAN Patient Services.
Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital research.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
