Since 2017, the Jo-Ann Danzis Foundation has been raising funds for cutting-edge pancreatic cancer research of leading expert, Dr. Angela Alistar, Medical Director, GI Medical Oncology at Morristown Medical Center’s Simon Cancer Center.
Our fundraisers include the annual Cork & Fork for a Cause each fall, along with other events as planned. We’ve paired this financial focus with increasing awareness through lecture sponsorship and educational outreach online and in schools.
We are seeking volunteers to join us…YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Pancreatic Cancer is expected to be the 2nd leading cause of all cancer-related deaths in 2020.
Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. For all stages combined, 91% of Pancreatic Cancer patients will die within the five years of diagnosis-only 10% will survive more than five years.
Pancreatic Cancer is one of the few cancers for which survival has not improved substantially over more than 40 years.
