Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) is a month dedicated to spreading awareness and education about pancreatic cancer. As the global leader in advancing treatment ​and cures, we encourage all supporters to join us as we recognize the relentless community, cutting-edge research, the importance of time and push for progress in our journey to transform pancreatic cancer into a curable disease.  


We call on our community of supporters to spread the message that though our impact is profound, there is still much work to be done.

As the nation’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research, we aren’t simply another voice in the dialogue calling for earlier detection and better therapies for pancreatic cancer, we started the conversation. We shine a spotlight on pancreatic cancer and do everything possible to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. And we do this by funding leading-edge research. By working collectively and utilizing our networks, we can realize the Lustgarten vision of a world in which there is a cure for pancreatic cancer and patients can enjoy a good quality of life.
