Turn Capitol Hill Purple
Advocacy Day is an incredible bonding experience for those who choose to attend either by themselves or with their families, friends or colleagues. The more voices we can bring to the Capitol to deliver our message to Congress, the farther we can go.
Why Advocacy Day Matters
The federal government is the largest source of research funding for pancreatic cancer research, accounting for approximately 80 percent of all research funding. To double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020 – and far surpass this milestone – we need more research in the field.
Each year, your members of Congress determine how much is allocated to cancer research. Meeting your elected officials and their staff in-person is the most impactful way to ensure Congress prioritizes funding lifesaving cancer research for a disease with no early detection strategy and no treatment options that offer a cure.
Advocacy Day is an opportunity for you to bring your story to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, to speak on behalf of those who could not, and provide hope for the future.
