FLORIDA PANCREAS CANCER COALITION MAKES $40,000 DONATION TO MAYO CLINIC FOR PANCREAS CANCER RESEARCH IN JACKSONVILLE
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – This month, The Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition, Inc. (FLPCC) presented a donation check of $40,000 to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville for the purpose of supporting pancreas cancer research right here in North Florida.
“Our team has worked diligently in an effort to support pancreas cancer research so one day we can find a cure to fight his deadly disease. We are excited to see the FLPCC’s financial contribution being used in this manner and are hopeful to continue to play a role in the fight against pancreas cancer,” said Anna Murphy, the President of FLPCC.
The goal of the FLPCC is to invest in local, yet world class, pancreas cancer research where our local neighbors can feel that they are part of the team and actually see and experience where their money is going and what it is accomplishing. Our simple motto is this: “Local money for local world class pancreas cancer research.” Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition, Inc. (FLPCC) has a Board with active committee members for the purpose of raising local money for local research. Pancreas cancer affects all demographics and 85-percent of those diagnosed will die within six months and of the remaining 15-percent only one-third have a survival rate more than four years. With diminishing funding and the devastating nature of pancreas cancer the FLPCC believes in raising money in a transparent manner on a local level so that all can see the progress to cure this cancer.
