Deadliest cancers overlooked by charity donors: Study

Young said the truth is, those afflicted with the deadliest cancers aren't getting the chance to speak out for their cause and to ask the public for support —they're not living long enough to do so. 

Breast, leukemia, childhood cancers ask loudly and frequently whereas other cancers like pancreatic, stomach, lung and colorectal don't have a voice," Young said.

The following links are to newspapers articles that came out today and to the actual study released "Cancer in Canada" by Charity Intelligence Canada. Although not surprising it speaks to the less then acceptable funding of Pancreatic Cancer. 0.8% of research funding is allocated to Pancreatic Cancer. 0.1% of donations are directed to Pancreatic Cancer.
We CAN change this! Get involved.......HELP us change these statistics......it happened for Breast Cancer.....it can happen for Pancreatic Cancer.
