When Uniform Advantage was researching several charitable organizations to support, we chose Pancreatic Cancer Action Network because of the great strides they have made in bringing more attention to this disease.
Plantation, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest relative five-year survival rate of all major cancers at just 7 percent. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network was founded in 1999 with a mission to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by the disease. The organization has a bold goal: Double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. Since 2003, it has privately funded 112 research grants totaling nearly $23 million, and its grassroots advocacy efforts have helped increase federal funding for pancreatic cancer research by $87.5 million since 1999.
Lori Nadeau-Dunlap, Vice President of Marketing said “When Uniform Advantage was researching several charitable organizations to support, we chose Pancreatic Cancer Action Network because of the great strides they have made in bringing more attention to this disease. They give hope to the people and families affected by this cancer.”
This Spring 2015, Uniform Advantage will donate $1 from the sale of each “Tree of Hope White” print to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in support of the fight against pancreatic cancer. The total donation is expected to equal more than $3,000.
