MAKING IMPACT FOR PANCREATIC CANCER TOGETHER!
Every state and country is affected by COVID-19, however some individuals who have an ongoing or new cancer diagnosis are at significant risk, either from the virus itself or because many of the most effective cancer treatments can cause immunosuppression.
Because of this and due to race closures we invite you to Run or Walk (or just Fundraise) right where you are!
Pancreatic cancer patients and families need you now more than ever.
Most of our fundraisers, supporters, and volunteers, have been in one way or another, personally effected by this disease. We want to acknowledge what hardships you may have gone through (or are currently facing) and sincerely thank you for visiting our site!
Your gift will directly support pancreatic cancer research (aimed at early diagnosis), increase education, raise awareness, and help patients and families impacted by this disease. All donations are tax-deductible.

Together with You our Mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis.
WHY WE CARE:
Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers and the Least funded. Fewer than 10% of people with this type of disease remain alive five years later. There are many reasons why the outcome for pancreatic cancer patients is bleaker than for most other cancer types, because symptoms often don’t appear until the disease has already metastasized. For unknown reasons, pancreatic cancer is on the rise and predicted to become the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. by 2030. There are no reliable methods to detect the disease early, and there are very few effective treatment options. There is still Hope! If the tumor is contained in the pancreas, the five-year survival rate increases to nearly 40%. Which is why we are so focused on supporting research for early diagnosis.
If the cancer is detected at an early stage when surgical removal of the tumor is possible, the 5-year survival rate is 34%. About 10% of people are diagnosed at this stage. If the cancer has spread to surrounding tissues or organs, the 5-year survival rate is 12%. For the 52% of people who are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to a distant part of the body, the 5-year survival rate is 3%.
