By The Numbers
Less than 5% of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive 5 years.
According to The American Cancer Society, 37,000 will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018.
36,000 of these folks will die within 2 years.
Of all those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, half die within 4 months.
In the near future, pancreatic cancer will rank as the #2 killer.
The federal government is only currently allocating $1,972 of research dollars per new case of pancreatic cancer. Other inequities in funding........
Breast Cancer receives $14,147 a year per cancer death
(6.5 times more than pancreatic cancer).
Prostate Cancer receives $10,946 a year per cancer death
(5 times more than pancreatic cancer).
Colorectal Cancer receives $4,952 a year per cancer death
(2.3 times more than pancreatic cancer).
One person CAN make a difference.
