Pancreatic Cancer Advocates Call on Congress to Protect Medical Research Funding From Sequestration Cuts
Date:6/17/2013

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 550 people from across the country, including nearly 100 pancreatic cancer survivors, will participate in the Seventh Annual Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day on June 18, 2013 to thank Congress for passing the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act and tell them that their fight isn't over. Advocates from the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will call on Congress to support a permanent fix to sequestration and provide sustained adequate funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

"We are extremely grateful to Congress for passing the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act and to President Obama for signing the bill into law, but our work is far from over. Unfortunately, due to the sequestration cuts to NCI and NIH, the progress made possible by passing this bill is currently in jeopardy," said Julie Fleshman, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  "Continued strong support of federal funding for medical research is not only critical to curing diseases like pancreatic cancer, but is also important for the continued growth of our economy.  On Advocacy Day, we will tell Congress to issue a cease and desist order on the cuts to our nation's medical research enterprise so that we can get back to the business of saving lives."

The five year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just six percent – the lowest of all major cancers. This statistic is particularly alarming when you consider the survival rate for all cancers is 68 percent. Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States, but is anticipated to become the second by 2020. Fed
