We end our 2019 Year in Review series today, which features stories of supporters taking action in their communities through advocacy, PurpleStride events, volunteerism, DIY fundraising and more, by sharing highlights from our 2019 Annual Impact Report.
It was a busy and exciting year for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN). And what’s the best way to highlight the accomplishments made throughout 2019?
With an annual impact report, celebrating you!
You’re probably thinking, “Did I really make that much of an impact this year?” Yes! You did!
Our annual report is about you, our heroes.
Through your involvement, advocacy, volunteerism and support, you moved mountains to make sure no one is alone in their journey with pancreatic cancer.
