Making IMPACT for Pancreatic Cancer Together!
Together with You, our mission is to promote awareness, increase education, further pancreatic cancer research (aimed at early diagnosis), and help patients and families impacted by the effects of pancreatic cancer.
Our Philosophy About Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer is a serious disease. Taking an aggressive rational stance at the earliest possible time, supported by the best medical team, and treated in the most appropriate manner gives the best chance for survival. We believe in strong patient-physician bonds, scientifically-based treatment, and that comfort can come from knowing that everything that reasonably can be done – is being done.
MONTHLY MEMORIAL GIFTS: YOUR TRIBUTE TO A LOVED ONE
Regular giving can be an opportunity to pay tribute in honour of a loved one. Your monthly gift will go directly to promoting awareness, increasing education, furthering pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis and, helping patients and families impacted by the effects of pancreatic cancer.
Simply select “Monthly” after choosing the amount you would like to give.
EARLY DIAGNOSIS IS KEY!
There are many reasons why the outcome for pancreatic cancer patients is much bleaker than for most other cancer types. There are no reliable methods to detect the disease early, and there are very few effective treatment options. There remains a dire need for more research and an increase in focused funding for pancreatic cancer. A key approach is to foster a marker to help diagnose the disease earlier.

Pancreatic cancer is expected to become the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death by the year 2020. There are many reasons why the outcome for pancreatic cancer patients is much bleaker than for most other cancer types. There are no reliable methods to detect the disease early, and there are very few effective treatment options.
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%.

Cancer Patients Alliance – CPA (Pancreatic Cancer Alliance) was founded in 2001 in Monterey County, California by physicians and community members alarmed at the lack of sufficient, reliable information to enable cancer patients to be partners in their medical care. CPA’s experience is in initiating innovative, community approaches that build on creating collaborations with organizations and health providers.
Additionally, CPA has founded and supports the information-intensive web resources known as Pancreatica.org and NETumor.net in order to provide current, credible and comprehensive information about pancreatic cancer, and related neuroendocrine tumors.
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!
