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 second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, the survival rate for pancreatic cancer - the percentage of patients who are living five years after diagnosis - is just 10 percent. This is because far more people are diagnosed at stage IV when the disease has metastasized. This survival rate has changed little in the last 40 years.
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
