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 lifesaving research. Two of the leading experts in both treatment and research are on our Medical Advisory Panel (MAP) and work closely with us.
