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.
Pancreatic cancer is currently the third 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
- Finding the cure
JOIN THE EFFORT…BE A PART OF THE POSSIBLE, BE THE HOPE.
