Dear Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Friends:
The new year always brings a renewed sense of hope and opportunity. The momentum in the pancreatic cancer scientific community is growing. This optimism only fuels us to work harder and smarter to help accelerate progress.
Since our founding in the United States in 1999, the research landscape for pancreatic cancer has transformed and continues to evolve. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has played a significant role in helping to bring about this evolution. The number of investigators studying the disease continues to grow, and the field of pancreatic cancer research is attracting more brilliant minds than ever before.
By coming together, I know we can continue to accelerate progress and bring hope to all of those touched by this leading cancer killer.
With wishes for a joyous 2010,
Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA
President & CEO, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network United States Chairman of the Board, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Japan
