Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
WORKING TOGETHER FOR A CURE
PanCAN is the first national patient-based advocacy organization for the pancreatic cancer community that serves patients, families, medical researchers and physicians. Founded in 1999 by surviving family members of individuals who died of pancreatic cancer, and chartered as a grassroots organization of advocacy for pancreatic cancer patients and their families, PanCAN currently has volunteers and members throughout the United States and around the world. The organization works to focus national attention on the need to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, and provides public and professional education embracing the urgent need for more research, effective treatments, prevention programs and early detection methods.
