The National Pancreas Foundation provides hope for those suffering from pancreas disease through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.

The NPF 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. Since its foundation in 1997, the NPF has given over $3 million to fund 100 groundbreaking research projects. The Foundation advocacy efforts have also been very effective, actively participating in various national advisory councils and in Department of Defense Consumer Reviews. Furthermore, the NPF has supported initiatives that have led to millions of dollars of additional research by the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense and other institutions.
