Mission: To support and provide hope to patients who have been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and their loved ones; to raise awareness and educate the public about Pancreatic Cancer, the importance of early detection and treatment; and raise critical funding for Pancreatic Cancer research.

 

Strategy: To utilize the public forum that DeSean Jackson has been blessed with, as a NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneer, to raise awareness and educate the public about Pancreatic Cancer through engaging national and local media, local community Health Fairs, national telethons Standing Up 2 Cancer; cultivating and engaging community partners, clergy, hospitals; and, engaging DeSean’s 800,000+ Twitter fans.

Needs Assessment: The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for Pancreatic Cancer in the United States are:

– About 43,920 people (22,090 men and 21,830 women) will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

– About 37,390 people (18,850 men and 18,540 women) will die of pancreatic cancer; and, since 2004, rates of pancreatic cancer have increased about 1.5%%.

The lifetime risk of developing pancreatic cancer is about 1 in 71 (1.41%). This is about the same for men and women. A person’s risk may be altered by certain risk factors such as hereditary.
