2020 mission statement change

Prior to its current mission To Advance Pancreatic Cancer Research and Awareness through Charitable Giving, the Jo-Ann Danzis Foundation supported a broader range causes including (general) education and the arts. In an effort to “do more good”, we narrowed our view to focus solely on pancreatic cancer.
