A Message from the President and CEO

The guest columnist for this month’s Pancreas Matters is Lynn Matrisian, PhD, Vice President of Scientific and Medical Affairs at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. In her letter, Lynn describes our analyses that led to the results presented in our new report, The Alarming Rise of Pancreatic Cancer Deaths in the United States: Why we need to stem the tide today.

With warm regards,

Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA
President and CEO
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

Dear Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters:

Everyone receiving this message has in some way been touched, directly or indirectly, by pancreatic cancer. We are all too familiar with the statistics and dismal outcomes of the disease. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is dedicated to achieving our goal of doubling the survival rate of pancreatic cancer by 2020. Part of our strategy includes passing the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act, federal legislation that would help the biomedical community defeat this disease.
