New American Society data reveals that despite falling cancer rates, pancreatic cancer death rates continue to rise.
Only 9% of pancreatic cancer patients live 5-years or more.

A segment from “The Patients Are Waiting: How HARPA Will Change Lives Now”
November 15, 2018
FoxBusiness.com published an op-ed written by our board member, Sandi Wright, about the economic and societal benefits of HARPA, the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Here is a brief excerpt:
“We all have something to gain from the success of an innovative health establishment that is required to push the boundaries of modern research and treatment. Even though DARPA’s mission for the last 60 years has been to develop capabilities for national security, its collaborative research led to household products as profound as the Internet and as superficial as the Roomba. What might exist in 60 years because of HARPA: a pill that prevents cancer? Eye drops that make UV light visible? An immunotherapy treatment to thwart pancreatic cancer for those identified to be at risk?” – Sandi Drucker Wright

Today is World Pancreatic Cancer Day, and with the flurry of non-stop news we cannot lose sight of the urgency of this disease… The Patients Are Waiting!
Since Suzanne Wright died two years ago, we have lost more than 95,000 Americans to pancreatic cancer. Each day, 151 people are diagnosed. Most are given months, not years, to live.
Despite medical advancements, there are NO early detection tests and NO curative treatments for pancreatic cancer.
Bob Wright was a guest on Fox Business, Good Day New York and NBC today to talk about pancreatic cancer, HARPA and share his thoughts on the latest GE developments.
