Our Philosophy About Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a serious disease. Taking an aggressive rational stance against pancreas cancer, at the earliest possible time, supported by the best medical team, and treated in the most appropriate manner gives the best chance for pancreatic cancer survival. We believe in strong patient-physician bonds, scientifically-based pancreatic cancer treatment, and that comfort can come from knowing that everything that reasonably can be done – is being done. That the best approach is meeting cancer of the pancreas head-on and armed with the best available information.

Recently, a seasoned specialist told us that we had the highest social good to donation ratio that they had ever seen in any non-profit. We put all donations to serious use toward the mission of fighting pancreatic cancer. Less than 8% of donated funds are used for management expenses.

ABOUT PANCREATIC CANCER

Pancreatic Cancer

The pancreas is a small, spongy organ which lies just under the curvature of the stomach and deep within the abdomen. The function of the pancreas is a complicated, but one could say that it primarily does two things …

Medical Treatment

There are no universally agreed upon firm guidelines for medical treatment for those patients with pancreatic cancer who are not candidates for surgery or who have a recurrence of the cancer after surgical resection…

Surgical Treatment

Surgery for adenocarcinoma of the pancreas is only offered to patients whose tumor is localized and meets other criteria (please note earlier FAQ topics). Only about 15-20% of those individuals with pancreatic cancer will be found to be eligible for surgery…

Symptoms

Pancreatic cancer in the early stages typically causes vague nonspecific symptoms. These symptoms and signs may include poor appetite, weight loss, abdominal or back pain, Jaundice (yellowing of the eyes or skin, dark colored urine and/or light colored bowel movements) …

Causes

The true specific cause of pancreatic cancer in an individual is generally never known. But there are population level studies which demonstrate associations between specific behaviors or characteristics and pancreatic cancer. And pancreatic cancer is more common in some families …

Neuroendocrine

Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas (islet cell tumors) including carcinoid tumors are much less common than tumors arising from the exocrine pancreas. Reports often indicate that there are about two to three thousand cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year…

Genetic Testing for Pancreatic Cancer

PROPOSED: Every newly diagnosed person with pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) should receive genetic screening prior to beginning treatment – to test for germline genetic mutations in the homologous recombination DNA repair pathway, including genes such as BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2, and others. These results, in from 12% to 17% of pancreatic cancer patients, suggest that treatment that includes DNA cross-linking agents such as platinum compounds or PARP inhibitors may be superior to standard best practices therapy.


OFFER: Color Genomics offers a 30-gene cancer panel for $224 (normally $249) when the Promotion Code “PANCREATIC” is entered at checkout (price will reduce upon entering this code). This is a physician-ordered saliva kit. Click Here for more information

RATIONALE: The age of precision medicine in pancreatic cancer is approaching … [MORE]

Pancreatic cancer is expected to become the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death by the year 2020. There are many reasons why the outcome for pancreatic cancer patients is much bleaker than for most other cancer types. There are no reliable methods to detect the disease early, and there are very few effective treatment options.

There remains a dire need for more research and an increase in focused funding for pancreatic cancer. Your Donation will go directly to promoting awareness, increasing education, and furthering pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis.

Our mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research, specifically research aimed at early diagnosis.

There remains a dire need for more research and an increase in focused funding for pancreatic cancer. Your Donation will go directly to promoting awareness, increasing education, and furthering pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis. Studies show that death rates for pancreatic cancer are increasing while for most other cancers they are declining, we need change !

Early diagnosis is key:
Survival increases dramatically if patients are diagnosed in time for surgery!
