This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

If you, or someone you know, would like to contribute to this fund, please visit our Donors page for more information on how to provide critical support for patients in need.

About Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of the pancreas, which secretes enzymes that aid in digestion and hormones that help regulate the metabolism of sugars. The exocrine and endocrine cells of the pancreas form different types of tumors. Exocrine tumors are the most common type, and approximately 95% of cancers are adenocarcinoma, which starts in gland cells. Tumors of the endocrine pancreas are uncommon, accounting for less than 4% of all pancreatic cancers. As a group, they are known as pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) or islet cell tumors. Pancreatic cancer is rarely detected in early stages, and has a poor prognosis.
