Why has Pancreatic cancer gone from a single digit number to 11% survivor rate?


Eleven people out of one hundred will be alive five years after their pancreatic cancer diagnosis. The five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients has increased recently from a single digit number to 11%. Tori Larrick, Patient Services Manager ll with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network recently shared with us why early detection and better treatment options are some of the reasons why we are seeing this increase.

This episode of Living Hope is dedicated to PanCAN’s Survivor Council and Survivor Council Alumni. The Survivor Council was formed to represent the voice of survivors and they are committed to ensuring that the survivor perspective is integrated into all that PanCAN does.
