About Pancreatic Cancer:
Pancreatic cancer is known as the world’s toughest cancer. In fact, it is the third deadliest cancer, on target to become the second by 2030. Over the past 40+ years, we’ve seen only marginal improvements in survival and yet it remains one of the most overlooked and underfunded cancers. Too many people are told to go home and get their affairs in order when they receive the devastating diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. PancONE, together with our partners at Pancreatic Cancer Canada, have decided that enough is enough.
We’ve raised enough sympathy – it is time to raise survival rates.
Survival must increase more rapidly than 1-2% every decade. We changed the odds for breast cancer in our lifetime, let’s make pancreatic cancer our next great legacy.
PancONE aims to disrupt the traditional approach to discovery in pancreatic cancer by bringing together multiple sectors, innovations and novel methods to drive real change. We’ve waited long enough for the kind of progress people deserve. PancONE is committed to working with all partners who believe as we do that we can change the outcome for the world’s toughest cancer.
