									annual report 2008–2009
dear Friends:
On behalf of everyone at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, we thank
you for your generous support this past year. Despite the downturn in our
country’s economy, the steadfast dedication of our donors never wavered.
In fact, our total income increased by 16 percent during fiscal year 2008-
09 compared to our previous fiscal year. This critical support has allowed
us to continue providing much-needed and high-quality services and
programs for the nation’s pancreatic cancer community.

Our approach to fighting pancreatic cancer is comprehensive, effective
and far-reaching. We directly fund important research grants, advocate
for more aggressive federal research funding, provide comprehensive
services to patients and families facing this disease through our Patient
and Liaison Services (PALS) program and support a robust, all-volunteer
network comprising thousands of volunteers nationwide that focuses on
furthering our community outreach programs. The synergy produced by
these efforts has created an unprecedented momentum in the pancreatic
cancer community. More people continue to become involved all the time.

We cannot help but feel a renewed sense of hope as we reflect upon all our
accomplishments during FY 2008-09. Your enthusiastic involvement and
many contributions are especially inspirational.

We hope you share our zeal as you review this annual report.

Warmest regards,



Jason Kuhn                                   Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA

aBout the pancreatic
cancer action network
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Inc. was founded in 1999 to
focus national attention on a disease that is the fourth leading cause
of cancer death in the United States but receives far less consideration
than cancers of comparable severity. Initially created as a grassroots
organization, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has become a
national leader in the quest to defeat pancreatic cancer. The Pancreatic
Cancer Action Network fulfills its mission through a comprehensive
strategy that combines directly funding research, increasing federal
research dollars through public policy efforts, providing patient services,
and extending community outreach and education nationwide. The
organization stands as a beacon of hope for the pancreatic cancer
community by providing leadership and unity in the urgent fight to find
a cure.

aFFairs
Our Research and Scientific Affairs program advances basic science, early detection,
translational research and the development of new therapeutics by directly funding
research grants for scientists investigating pancreatic cancer. Under the advisement of
our pre-eminent Scientific Advisory Board, the organization employs a clear strategy to
combat a disease that poses unique and significant research challenges.

Importantly, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network not only provides financial support
for research, but supports a mentoring program to maintain ongoing involvement with
grantees to help leverage their funding and enhance their career development.

The organization continuously evaluates the scientific needs of the pancreatic cancer
community. These efforts enable us to make appropriate recommendations and
modifications to our research grants program that reflect changes, developments
and needs in the scientific community, ensuring that our program continues to have
maximum impact.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network achieved an important milestone this fiscal year by working with U.S.
Representatives Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) to introduce the Pancreatic Cancer Research &
Education Act (H.R. 745), the first-ever substantive legislation dedicated to advancing pancreatic cancer research.
To increase awareness of the bill during the third annual Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day in March of 2009, we
employed a "Know Your Pancreas" advertising campaign, which featured the ad above.

patient and liaison
services (pals)
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s Patient and Liaison Services (PALS) program is
a comprehensive, free information service for pancreatic cancer patients, their families
and health professionals. Those who call the PALS program are matched with highly
trained, dedicated PALS Associates who are available to answer questions and provide
information and support.            Those in need are encouraged to contact PALS as many
times as they wish to get the information they require throughout their pancreatic cancer
journey.

The PALS program also offers a library of educational materials and hosts Pancreatic
Cancer Symposia, a series of complimentary, in-person educational events held around
the nation for patients and their families.

The program is the only one of its kind providing quality, detailed information on topics
including diagnosis, treatment options, clinical trials, diet and nutrition, specialists and
support resources. The goal of the PALS program is to help patients and their families

community outreach
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is powered by active affiliates in more than 70
cities across the nation. Our affiliates comprise hundreds of dedicated and passionate
volunteers who help us to fulfill our important mission.

Affiliate volunteers work as teams to raise funds and awareness by hosting local events,
by educating the public through health fairs, and by providing valuable information about
the disease to hospitals, clinics and medical professionals. They also help us to further our
goals by engaging their local media, and by alerting their elected officials about the urgent
need for scientific progress in the area of pancreatic cancer research.

Thanks to their focus and dedication, in 2008-09, our volunteers were extremely successful
in raising much-needed awareness and funds and educating their communities about
pancreatic cancer.

donor & corporate
relations
The generous donations of hundreds of committed individuals, foundations and corporations
support our comprehensive approach to fighting pancreatic cancer. This critical support
allows us to expand the essential services we provide, fund innovative research and
advance the best scientific investigations.


“Losing our mother (Ruth Fredman Cernea) to pancreatic cancer was
devastating to our whole family. It is absurd that a disease that is one
of the most lethal of all cancers is the most underfunded. when we
heard of the pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s commitment to fund
research to find early detection methods, more effective treatments
and ultimately a cure, we knew that is where we wanted to invest our
dollars to pay loving tribute to her.”

national corporate champion program
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has launched a Corporate Champion Program
designed to identify, establish and cultivate meaningful, long-term corporate relationships
to raise awareness and funds through national cause-related marketing campaigns and
sponsorship agreements. We wish to acknowledge these generous companies and their
customers for helping to support our lifesaving mission.


TEmpuR-pEDIC®
Our Corporate Champion Program reached its first major milestone
with the signing of a national cause-marketing agreement with
Tempur-Pedic, one of the most recognized brands for innovative
sleep systems in the bedding industry. Tempur-Pedic had previously
supported our cause as a corporate sponsor of the annual Seena
Magowitz Celebrity Golf Classic.

                                 In an effort to expand and deepen their commitment to our
                                 mission, Tempur-Pedic will launch a national awareness
                                 and fundraising campaign in the fall of 2009 by offering
a special edition of its popular My Tempur-Pedic Teddy Bear® for sale on their website
and at retailers across the country. The special-edition teddy bear will be co-branded
with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network logo in an effort to generate awareness of our
organization. Tempur-Pedic will donate all net proceeds from the sales of the plush toys to
our organization to support the fight against pancreatic cancer.


pAuL mITCHELL THE SCHooL
                                During the past six years, individuals with the Paul Mitchell
                                Schools have generously donated their time and talents for
                                philanthropy,	 raising	 nearly	 $3.4	 million	 to	 support	 many	
                                charitable causes. The school’s Future Professionals and
staff members have held a variety of hands-on events, including cut-a-thons, fashion
shows, bake sales, “Casual for a Cause” days and other grassroots initiatives to fundraise.
In commemoration of the 20-year anniversary in 2009 of Paul Mitchell’s passing from
pancreatic cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network was one of seven charities that
benefited from the schools’ annual “Magic of Memories” campaign, an effort that raised
nearly $1 million this year alone.
