The Facts About Pancreatic Cancer



  • It's the most lethal cancer there is. Overall survival rate is 6%.
  • More than 46,000 Americans will be diagnosed this year. More than 39,000 will die.
  • No early test. Less than 20% of those diagnosed are eligible for surgery.
  • No cure, unless the cancer is surgically removed in its earliest stages.
  • Too little federal funding. Pancreatic cancer research constitutes only 2% of the National Cancer Institute's budget.
  • But there is hope. With Cablevision's support of The Lustgarten Foundation, 100% of your donation will go directly to pancreatic cancer research.
