About This Event
In January 2016, the American Cancer Society announced that Pancreatic Cancer had surpassed Breast Cancer and is now the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the US. In 2015, close to 50,000 Americans were diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, and just over 40,000 Americans died from it. In 2008, 5% of diagnosed patients lived beyond a year, now the average is 7.2% past 5 years. Progress is being made, but more can be done. By the time Pancreatic Cancer is discovered in most patients, it is too late. How can this be changed?
AWARENESS, RESEARCH, EARLY DETECTION
