Founded in 1999 by three visionaries as a small, non-profit, 501(c)(3) patient-based advocacy organization, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network understands the many challenges that patients and their families face in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
With our national headquarters in Manhattan Beach, California, and a Government Affairs office in Washington, DC, the organization fulfills its mission through a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
Under the direction of President and CEO Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network comprises a national Board of Directors, a Scientific Advisory Board, a Medical Advisory Council and a staff dedicated to fighting the disease.
