FAMILIES FIGHTING PANCREATIC CANCER

Our Mission

The National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation (NPCF) is a nonprofit organization that provides unwavering support to people touched by pancreatic cancer. We believe that awareness, education, research, and direct financial assistance help provide earlier diagnosis, patient security, and increased survival rates. It is our mission to provide support so that pancreatic cancer patients can focus on their treatment and their families.

Our Survivors

Christina1 292X300 Circle | Home | National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation

NPCF reached out to Christina Parrish, a 15 year Pancreatic Cancer survivor and founder of the Purple Iris Foundation, and asked to share her story.

“One day during my workout, I was stretching out on a Pilates ball and I noticed a bump protruding under my left rib cage. I knew something was not right. I had also been very tired, having a hard time eating, extreme back pain under my shoulder blades. I just hurt all over and felt like I was dying! I also had lost 60 lbs…and was a skeleton!

I went to my primary care doctor and had a CT scan and ultrasound performed. Four days later, the physician assistant told me that I had a mass in my pancreas and lesions on my liver. Holding back tears, I asked if they could take them out. But she said they couldn’t. The physician assistant mentioned that I should see an oncologist, and that was the first indication that she was talking about cancer.

Affected by Pancreatic Cancer?

Would YOU help us take a stand against pancreatic cancer?

The National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is funded by donations only. Your donations enable us to provide unwavering support to those in need. Pancreatic cancer is a silent killer and many do not survive much past diagnosis. Testing and medical treatment is extremely expensive even with insurance. We want to provide support for both patients and their families.
