The Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation (PCCF) is focused on fighting pancreatic cancer through raising funds for research, awareness, education and advocacy. PCCF’s goals are to improve overall patient survival rates and create a brighter future for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
Since its inception in 2006, PCCF has invested nearly $4 million in research at cancer centres across Canada; funding scientific projects in early detection, treatment and improving patient outcomes. Each year, individuals whose lives have been affected by pancreatic cancer connect with us in an effort to raise awareness and much needed funding. Some participate in our signature events; others hold their own fundraisers, contributing thousands of dollars to support life saving research. Two of the leading experts in both treatment and research are on our Medical Advisory Panel (MAP) and work closely with us.
We understand that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, either as a patient or as a loved one, can be emotionally overwhelming. Talking can help. Talking with someone who has been there before, can help ease those emotions. Talking with someone who is both comforting and non-judgemental, can make you, or your loved ones, feel less alone, and feel better.
