About Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation
The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization located in Chicago. The Foundation's mission is to serve as a catalyst for the early diagnosis and ultimate cure of pancreatic cancer. The Foundation's goals are to:
1. Advance the development of early detection:
Just as there are early detection tests for prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer, we support research that works to develop a similar diagnostic test for pancreatic cancer in its earliest stage, when it's most treatable.
2. Fund medical research at leading clinical and academic centers:
The number of scientific investigators with a demonstrated focus on pancreatic cancer is limited, relative to other cancers. We raise money for top-tier research institutions that can attract more scientists dedicated to pancreatic cancer research.
3. Provide resources for pancreatic cancer patients, and their loved ones:
It's not always easy to find information about pancreatic cancer. The Rolfe Foundation is a link to people and places for answers about this disease.
