Pancreatic cancer is very aggressive, fortunately so are we!
Why us? Because early diagnosis is key!
91% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis.
There is no detection test. If patients are diagnosed in time for surgery, their chance of surviving 5 years or more increases ten-fold.

Our mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research.
Specifically, research aimed at finding the disease earlier. If pancreatic cancer is found even one year earlier
in an individual patient evidence exists that rather than only 15% of those who are eligible for potentially curative surgery at diagnosis now – this figure may increase dramatically.
Cancer Patients Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose initiatives include ToFightCancer and Pancreatica. All donations are tax-deductible. Recently, a seasoned specialist told us that we had the highest social good to donation ratio that they had ever seen in any non-profit.
We put all donations to serious use toward the mission of fighting pancreatic cancer. Less than 8% of donated funds are used for management expenses.
