This is an emergency.

Pancreatic cancer is the most deadly of all major cancers, yet receives only 2% of National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding. There is no detection test. There are no curative treatments. 43,000 people have died every year, for nearly 50 years. There is no urgency.

The model is broken.

Pancreatic cancer is not a priority at the NCI. We need leadership and accountability. If any other business delivered the same failing results for four decades, we would shut it down and start over.

Demand a new approach.

Develop a pancreatic cancer pilot program, with federal research assets, that leverages the tools and resources of the private sector.  Drive innovation and fast-track development of an early detection test and curative treatments.
