CARA Friends


Raised: $12,405

Goal: $15,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

The past 9 years this team alone has raised over $180,000 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN), contributing to PanCAN's Research Grants Program $10.5 million in grants awarded to Scientists since 2003!

Funding research is the only way PanCAN's scientific community can develop early detection methods, find better drug therapies, create targeted clinical trials, support patients' need for information through PanCAN's Patient Central, at no cost to them. Fundraising also supports PanCAN's advocacy efforts with the federal government to increase budget dollars toward fighting this disease.

Supporting this team means you can help extend the 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients. The American Cancer Society announced the survival rate is up again this year to 12% thanks, in part, to generous donors like you. We are not done yet. An estimated 64,050 Americans will be 
diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2023, more people than ever before. Approximately 50,550 Americans are expected to die from the disease this year.

Pancreatic cancer remains the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths. So, your generous donation is crucial to continue our work. We humbly ask you to click "DONATE TO THIS TEAM" to help us reach our fundraising goal.

Maybe you would like to stride with us and help raise critically needed funds for research.  We'd love to have you on team CARA Friends.  Just click "JOIN THIS TEAM" below and create your own personal fundraising page.

Thank you for your support!
