Agi Hirshberg

As founder of the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, my commitment to focus on early detection and new treatment options is relentless! My ultimate dream is that our children will not know the devastating facts of this or any other cancer. Now in our sixteenth year, the Foundation's dedicated efforts have significantly raised awareness and understanding of the physiology of pancreatic cancer, a disease that continues to be one of the most fatal and least funded of all cancer types. 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"®

This 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 ask that you help in our fight to ensure everyone touched by this horrible disease has a better chance of survival and quality of life. Since we adopted this phrase, thousands of families have joined our efforts by raising money, volunteering and participating in fundraising events such as the L.A. Cancer Challenge.

We hope you too will join our relentless and passionate pursuit.

I encourage you to explore our web site. Our foundation’s core supporters are families who have personal experience with pancreatic cancer. Our funded research grants, clinical trials, pharmaceutical updates and ways we offer patient support are all here to inform and educate patients and their families. If you don't find what you're looking for, please feel free to contact us directly. We are here to help.

Most sincerely,
Agi Hirshberg
