"Look at pancreatic cancer and you'll see something deadly wrong. Survival rates have remained in the single digits for nearly forty years. Today, the five-year survival rate remains at just 6 percent. We have a vision to change that—to double the survival rate by the year 2020," stated Julie Fleshman, President and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  "We believe that the survival rate can be substantially increased and we will devote considerable effort and resources to doubling the survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients by 2020."

As the national leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is well positioned to achieve this goal by accelerating the application of its proven comprehensive approach to fighting the disease—combining research, support for individuals and families living with the disease, raising awareness and building and sustaining federal support.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network remains committed to building a comprehensive and coordinated pancreatic cancer research community to speed the acquisition of knowledge, share information and move findings into practice. The organization will continue to fund research grants that attract the most talented and promising young scientists to study the disease and re-engage scientists already in the fiel
