Take Action Now

Be an Advocate

The five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 13%. And most pancreatic cancer research funding comes from the federal government. To accelerate progress and improve patient outcomes, we must increase federal funding for cancer research.

When you speak up, Congress delivers. The Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act and 21st Century Cures Act became laws because of our advocates. Learn about our legislative priorities, and urge your elected officials to support greater research funds to save more lives.

PurpleStride Walk/Run

In over 50 cities across the country, nearly 85,000 purple-clad warriors go all-out to end pancreatic cancer. More than walk or run, they fundraise to fuel progress for patients and raise awareness of the world’s toughest cancer. Be a part of a monumental movement.
