WHY US? BECAUSE EARLY DIAGNOSIS IS KEY
Currently, only about 15% of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are eligible for potentially curative surgery. We need to find the disease earlier!
Pancreatic cancer is very aggressive. Fortunately together, so are we.
We are dedicated to promoting awareness, increasing education, and furthering pancreatic cancer research.

Our mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research, specifically research aimed at early diagnosis.
Studies show that death rates for pancreatic cancer are increasing while for most other cancers they are declining, we need change !
91% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis. There is currently no detection test. If patients are diagnosed in time for surgery, their chance of surviving meaningfully increases. A key approach is to foster a marker to help diagnose the disease earlier.
Together with You our Mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis.
Pancreatica.org is a top-rated internet resource containing unique educational resources for patients, their caregivers, physicians and researchers, that displays an impressive concentration of scientific articles.
Currently, no standard marker exists to diagnose the disease in early stages. Our aim is to support the development of a marker for early diagnosis. If the disease is found even a year earlier, outcomes will begin to improve. LEARN MORE
