From day one, the Jo-Ann Danzis Foundation has included in its mission advancing pancreatic cancer research. Since 2017, we have been raising funds for the cutting-edge research of Dr. Angela Alistar, a nationally-renown pancreatic cancer researcher and Director of GI Medical Oncology at Morristown Medical Center’s Simon Cancer Center. In an effort to “do more good”, the Foundation has narrowed its view with a new mission focusing solely on pancreatic cancer: To Advance Pancreatic Cancer Research and Awareness through Charitable Giving.
Our fundraisers include the annual Cork & Fork for a Cause each fall, along with other events as planned. We’ve paired this with increasing awareness through lecture sponsorship and educational outreach online and in schools.
Please come join us and help move the needle towards a cure for the world’s deadliest cancer….you, can make a difference.
