Our vision and mission

We want no less than to transform the future for everyone with pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is the toughest of cancer challenges. It’s tough to diagnose, tough to treat, tough to research and tough to survive. But we’re taking it on.

Our vision is that everyone with pancreatic cancer survives to live long and well.

We’ll transform the future for pancreatic cancer by funding research breakthroughs, campaigning for changes to treatment and care and supporting people when they need it the most.

Our five-year strategy: Finding breakthroughs. Giving hope. Saving lives.

In the last five years we have seen more progress than in the previous five decades. In the next five years, we know we can step up the pace and drive this progress even further forward, transforming how we diagnose, treat and care for people with pancreatic cancer – and ultimately saving lives.
