WINGS OF HOPE AWARDS THREE $50,000 GRANTS FOR PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH

WINGS OF HOPE is proud to award three $50,000 grants to University of Colorado Cancer Center physicians and personnel involved in pancreatic cancer research. The research proposals approved by WINGS OF HOPE involve (1) Aldehyde Dehydrogenase as a Potential Target in Pancreatic Cancer; (2) Patient Derived Tumor Organoids to Identify Effective Drug Combination Treatments for Pancreatic Cancer; and (3) Identification of Therapeutic Liabilities in the Mutant p53 Transcriptome. Information on the recipients will be announced at the formal grant award presentation later this year. Pancreatic cancer remains one of the deadliest cancers, with a 5 year survival rate less than 5 percent. Every dollar matters in this effort, and we thank all WINGS OF HOPE supporters for their continued generosity in making these research grants a reality.

WINGS OF HOPE for PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH was formed in February 2012 by Maureen A. Shul after losing her mother and brother within months of one another to pancreatic cancer. The non-profit foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funding for the ongoing research, clinical trials and treatment of pancreatic cancer patients at the Pancreatic Cancer Research Program at the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

The Shul Family

Pancreatic cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, pancreatic cancer is the only one with a five-year relative survival rate in the single digits, at just 6 percent. This survival rate has not changed in the last 40 years.

By 2020 it is anticipated pancreatic cancer will rise from the third to the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. (based on projected changes in U.S. population demographics and incidence of death rates).

With no early detection tools, effective treatments or adequate funding for research, the rapidly rising threat of pancreatic cancer urgently demands an increase in awareness and research funding.

Founded out of grief, driven by purpose and in pursuit of making a difference, WINGS OF HOPE for PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH is dedicated to
  - Accelerating the research
  - Providing the most advanced treatments
