Pancreatic Cancer is one of the toughest cancers to treat, with a five year survival rate of only 9%. Part of the reason behind the bleak numbers is due to a lack of understanding behind the disease, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is working change that.

 

Frank De Seno with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network says researchers are playing catch up in detecting and treating the disease.

 

 

One way the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is trying to increase awareness of the disease as well as how to treat it is through their website, pancan.org. De Seno says the website is a great source for anybody looking to learn more about Pancreatic Cancer.
