Patients, Family & Friends
The National Pancreas Foundation is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease – pediatric pancreatitis, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Our mission is to provide patients with the most current information on diagnostic tools, medical and alternative treatments, a directory of physicians who specialize in pancreatology, and clinical trials.
A comprehensive directory of related websites accessible through our website broadens the wealth of information about pancreas disease. Providing humanitarian support for patients and their families is also critical to our success, and support groups are being started, modeled on our success with the Boston support group.
Family & Friends
The National Pancreas Foundation’s success totally depends on your support! Whether it is donating in honor of a loved one, hosting a fundraiser in your community or approaching corporate sponsors, your investment of time, money or energy will bring us that much closer to finding cures for pancreas disease.
As an almost all-volunteer organization, the enthusiasm and commitment of individuals is key to the continuing growth and impact of NPF. Strong corporate sponsorship is essential for NPF to expand its administrative capabilities and truly have a national presence.
