As the national leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has a bold goal to double the pancreatic cancer survival rate by 2020. The five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer remains in the single digits at just 6%, and according to a recent report, it is estimated that by the year 2020, pancreatic cancer will move from the nation's fourth to the second leading cause of cancer death.
With Congress considering new cuts to federal funding for medical and cancer research, we must raise our voices against these cuts so that there is funding available for researching advances that could lead to new pancreatic cancer early detection tools and treatments.
Please join pancreatic cancer advocates from across the country in a National Call-in on June 18 and tell Congress to save medical research funding that could save lives.

Pancreatic cancer one of the most deadly cancers with a five-year survival rate of just 6% - the lowest among all major cancer killers. This year alone, more than 45,000 Americans will be diagnosed and over 38,000 Americans will succumb to pancreatic cancer. And according to a report by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, pancreatic cancer is increasing so fast it is expected to move from the fourth leading cause of cancer death to the second leading cause of cancer death by 2020.
These dire statistics call for aggressive measures to develop early detection tools and effective treatment options. Thanks to passage of the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act, we are now on our way to getting a national battle plan to attack the disease. But with Congress considering additional cuts to medical and cancer research, the time is NOW to join the fight.
