What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

1. Our LA Cancer Challenge Run/Walk will benefit our research efforts.

2. Our annual symposium will continue to educate and inform clinicians and researchers as well as patients.

3. Cancer Care, Inc. continues to process requests for financial aid. They assist approximately 230 patients per year throughout the United States.

Population(s) Served

The Foundation’s premiere educational program brings together patients, caregivers, clinicians and researchers to learn and discuss developments, personalized medicine, cutting-edge treatments and the progression of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.

Population(s) Served

One important aspect of the Hirshberg Foundation’s mission is to be recognized as a patient support and reference source for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Since 1998 the Foundation has contributed an annual grant to Cancer Care, Inc., which provides financial support for pancreatic cancer patients.

Cancer can have a devastating impact on a person’s financial well-being. Costs related to transportation to and from treatment, pain medication, child care, and home care can be overwhelming for patients and loved ones.

Population(s) Served

The Foundation Seed Grant program has been extremely successful in providing research support to basic and clinical scientists and investigators in the United States and overseas. To date the foundation has provided over $6 million for this program. The goals of the program are:

+ To provide start-up funding for basic scientists and clinicians who intend to test innovative ideas for improving diagnosis and to develop new treatment modalities for pancreatic cancer.
+ To obtain preliminary data required for additional funding from other agencies for pancreatic cancer research.
+ To impact on the understanding of pancreatic cancer cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, morphology and response to therapy.
+ To establish collaborations within the field for mutual projects that can be considered for further funding.
