Donations to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center Help Fight the Deadliest Cancer

Your Generosity Will Fund the Search for a Cure and Support Those Battling Pancreatic Cancer

November 16 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day—a day dedicated to raising awareness, inspiring action, and fighting for better outcomes for this deadly disease. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate among all major cancers. Every day, more than 1,000 people worldwide are diagnosed, and an estimated 985 die from the disease. While it is treatable when caught early, symptoms of pancreatic cancer don’t usually present until the later stages.

The Jefferson Pancreas, Biliary and Related Cancer Center at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, which is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center.  The highly skilled team offers innovative surgical, endoscopic, oncologic, and other treatments, as well as leading-edge research and a patient-centric approach to care delivery.

Please consider making a donation to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center to help researchers find treatments and cures for cancer, and to support patients as they fight the disease.
