Our Services

PanCAN is the only organization with a nationwide grassroots army, inspiring over one million people to take action to end pancreatic cancer. We serve the community as the one organization that attacks the disease through four key areas:

  • Scientific Research

    We pioneer and push science forward through our nationally acclaimed grants program and the cultivation of a thriving research community.

  • Patient Services

    We revolutionize the approach to treating pancreatic cancer by connecting patients with the latest treatment options and providing free, in-depth disease information.

  • Government Advocacy

    We demand federal funding for research and advocate for legislative support by lifting up our voices to keep pancreatic cancer at the forefront on Capitol Hill.

  • Community Engagement

    We lead and activate communities across the globe into a purple tide of humanity that draws greater awareness and funds to fight the disease.

Support Resources

No organization supports pancreatic cancer patients like PanCAN does. Through our Patient Services, we provide more resources and speak with more patients and caregivers than any other pancreatic cancer organization in the world.

PanCAN provides leading-edge patient resources like Know Your Tumor®, a precision medicine service; our Clinical Trial Finder and access to the most up-to-date and comprehensive pancreatic cancer clinical trial database in the U.S.; and our Patient Registry, a global database of patient information to help advance research and improve patient care.
