Evidence of Impact

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has been very effective in raising awareness about pancreatic cancer and has had a strong history of good research funding, advocacy, and education.

Great Fundraising for Research
In the 12 years that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network hired its first staff person, they have: 1. Directly funded millions of dollars of research which has been highly impactful (for example, their funding helped develop the first mouse model of pancreatic cancer); / 2. Dramatically increased the awareness of pancreatic cancer in the general public; / 3. Increased the public funding for pancreatic cancer research; 4. Developed a large and passionate group of grassroots advocates who are highly effective at spreading their message; 5. Provided excellent patient services through their call-line, clinical trial matching and patient information (print/website). Other
Good Research Funding, Education, and Advocacy
Pancreatic cancer causes nearly as many deaths per year as colon cancer, yet has only a fraction of the attention and research dollars devoted to it. PanCAN seeks to correct this through advocacy, education, and research funding. Researcher and Faculty
Patient Empowerment
Pancreatic cancer is the most deadly cancer - very few people survive at all. Yet PanCan has promoted a vision of hope, progress, and patient empowerment. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Raising Awareness
They have increased funding and awareness around Pancreatic cancer through celebrity tie-ins and a well-known name. They have great patient support and education. Other
They have made great strides in raising awareness of pancreatic cancer in a very short time. Nonprofit Senior Staff
PanCAN's messaging is clear, concise, and bold. They have effectively remained at the top of the ladder for service to pancreatic cancer patients & families, and for research funding. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong Influence on Congress
This group has succeeded in getting Congress and the cancer community to increase attention to the deadliest cancers, including pancreatic cancer. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Leader in Cancer Advocacy
Very solid pioneer in the area of advocacy for pancreatic patients. As far as I know, they have a good reputation for efficiency and quality service, and they take reasoned and useful positions on policy matters. Other
Model for Other Advocacy Groups
PanCAN is a model for other advocacy groups looking to make a real impact in the fight against disease. They directly fund research at levels that are astonishing. They ARE the driving force behind pancreatic cancer research in this country. They do their best to provide support and answers for patients and families for a disease that does not have many good answers. Their leadership from the top down is phenomenal. Their PALS line was a model for my organization's own helpline. Furthermore, they are incredibly supportive of other advocacy groups (they "play well in the sandbox"). Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

Experts have stated that this organization has been effective because of its strong leadership and its effective marketing and advocacy campaigns.

Great Leadership and Staff
The leadership provided by Julie Fleshman has been stellar. As its first hire, she has grown the organization through its start-up phase to a mid-sized non-profit with an annual budget of > $10M. Their research agenda drives all of their policy issues, which is a smart way to focus. Other
They have a strong long term leadership and staff that are passionate about the cause. They have grown tremendously in a very short time. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This group has strong leadership. It also has an impressive advocacy staff. Nonprofit Senior Staff
For a niche organization they have very forward thinking leadership and vitality. Researcher and Faculty
Strong Advocate
Recent rapid increases in activities show that the organization is capable of achieving its stated goals. PanCAN serves as the main public spokesman for victims of this highly fatal disease, that otherwise would lack advocates. Researcher and Faculty
They have consistent leadership and are well known among advocates. The organization works well with others. Other
Great Marketing
Their marketing is admirable - clear, easy to read, easy to understand resources are provided to patients and loved ones. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

According to experts, this organization could improve by altering its focus, working on a stronger national image, and diverting more time to fundraising.

More Fundraising
It needs more financial support for research and public outreach. The high mortality rate of pancreatic cancer has meant a paucity of survivors that can be spokespeople for the cause of curing pancreatic cancer and improving treatment and outcome. Pan CAN must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Researcher and Faculty
They should raise more money and fund more research. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They need to be better at raising funds to support a research initiative. Researcher and Faculty
Possibly Overstretched
They do a lot as a single organization. They might wish to consider peeling off a 501c4 for their lobbying activities so the 501c3 can be concentrated on the patient education/outreach and research funding. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Stronger National Presence
They are perceived as a West Coast group while actually being a national group. Other
Broader Focus
The group could broaden its focus. Nonprofit Senior Staff
