Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The average cost to treat pancreatic cancer is around $134,000, however, many patients are faced with the inability to continue work after diagnosis. Cancer tends to drain the family of savings, retirement, and any other financial security they have built over the years for future. It is this very real struggle that increases the need for financial assistance. No one should be forced choose between medical expenses and keeping a roof over their head and/or feeding their family. Our foundation strives to alleviate some of the burden pancreatic cancer patients face, by providing unwavering support through compassionate communication, information, encouragement, and financial assistance for basic living expenses. NPCF also sees the need for alternative therapies that complement traditional treatments for pancreatic cancer to provide a better chance of survival.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to assist patients and families with pancreatic cancer to ensure sustainability of life through programs such as direct financial assistance, complimentary therapies, alternative and integrative research, and educational awareness.

With these programs, we are able to help patients cover basic living expenses such as rent or mortgage, their utility bills, grocery bills, etc. Our alternative and integrative therapies program provides education on positive complimentary therapy through yoga, PEMF, nutrition, and other positive approaches to healthy living when combined with traditional medicine.

We also provide educational awareness about pancreatic cancer through media sources, during events such as car shows and 5k's, and other inspiring events throughout the United States. Our goal is to increase public awareness of the devastation of this particular type of cancer in order to save lives through earlier detection.

Our strategies to make this happen is continued educational awareness through media sources, physicians, other cancer organizations, collaborating with the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to bring pancreatic cancer to the forefront of the public via World Pancreatic Cancer Day every year.

We are also seeking funding from those individuals who have the ability to fund and the passion to support our missions and core programs.

NPCF has strategic plans for continued financial support for families in need. We are also continuing to research any and all options for a better survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients. We have a diverse board of directors who are passionate about our cause. In addition to our diligent hard working employees and volunteers across the country who want to see better survival rates for this specific cancer.

In the past 9 years we have provided 237 families with more than $745,000 in direct financial assistance. We have funded several alternative options for patients on the grass roots level. NPCF has created and provided a number of educational awareness efforts to include disseminating much needed knowledge of pancreatic cancer signs and symptoms by using social media, printed materials, a race car that travels all over the United States answering questions and supporting those afflicted by pancreatic cancer.
