A diagnosis of pancreas cancer means you have less than a 15%
chance of seeing the next year. Pancreas cancer is the only common
cancer with a single digit year survival rate. However,for every patient
there is a passionate group of family members, Physicians, and
Researchers who want to change these numbers.
The Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition is a group of survivors,
family members, and researchers who have united to raise money
to support pancreas cancer research being conducted here in Florida.
Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition, Inc. (FLPCC), was established
for the purpose of raising money for local research.
