Support for Funding Pancreatic Cancer Research at the Department of Defense

Fiscal Year 2025

Thanks to the hard work of our advocates across the country, members of Congress from both parties in the House and the Senate have signed a letter to support continued funding for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Program at the Department of Defense in fiscal year 2025.

We’re urging the 118th Congress to invest $25 million in the program to help provide more opportunities for research to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients. PanCAN advocates played a key role in the program’s founding in 2019 – the first federally funded program specifically for pancreatic cancer research. And PanCAN advocates have made sure it has been funded every year since. We want to keep the momentum going as we continue to work with legislators to create change.

Below is a list of legislators in the 118th Congress who signed on to support funding in fiscal year 2025.
