Welcome! As founder of the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, my ultimate dream is that our children will not know the devastating facts of this or any other cancer. Since 1997 the Foundation's dedicated efforts have significantly raised awareness and understanding of pancreatic cancer, a disease expected to become the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the US by 2020. Our determined funding of basic and translational research is our chance to offer life extension, effective treatment options and eventually, a cure for this diagnosis.
"You Can Hope, or You Can Help"® is not only our slogan but our trademarked call to action. Families affected by this disease cannot passively sit back and hope for a miracle. We hope you too will join our relentless and passionate pursuit.
I encourage you to view our short video as an introduction to our foundation and then explore our web site. If you don't find what you're looking for, please feel free to contact us directly. We are here to help.
