Pancreatic cancer kills 117 people every day.
This is an emergency. This is #CodePurple
Pancreatic cancer is the most deadly of all major cancers.
43,000 people have died every year, for 50 years.
THIS IS AN EMERGENCY.
THE MODEL IS BROKEN.
The NCI has spent more than $1 billion on pancreatic cancer in the last 10 years.
There is no detection test.
There are no curative treatments.
We have a solution.
Transfer pancreatic cancer funding and responsibility to the CDC. The CDC runs like an emergency room, and the agency will undertake this crisis on an emergency basis.
