Move over Black Friday and Cyber Monday; Giving Tuesday is here to stay! The widely recognized shopping events have some serious competition with the newest spending day, Giving Tuesday. We are proud to be a part of this charitable movement and urge for you to consider funding early detection pancreatic cancer research when making your end-of-year gifts!
The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation has been a leader in funding early detection pancreatic cancer research since its inception in 1999.
We believe a method of early detection is within reach. Pioneering research is ongoing in genetics, imaging and markers for the disease. More talented scientists are entering the field, and surgical procedures are producing higher rates of long-term survival.
On November 29, 2016 be sure to share the importance of early detection research. Share THIS LINK with your friends, family, coworkers, and EVERYONE!

Anywhere and everywhere - it's online!
It is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration! It was created 5 years ago by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y (a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back). #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow, and strengthen the movement.
