Our Story

In 1999, a community effort to honor Michael Rolfe began in a Highland Park living room. From those humble beginnings, it has blossomed into the impactful Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.

Today, our devotion to our families remains paramount. Through our patient support program, funding early detection research, and raising awareness about Pancreatic Cancer risk factors and symptoms, we aim to make a difference for everyone affected by this disease.

Our hands-on approach ensures no one has to face Pancreatic Cancer alone.

We provide personal, tailored support to patients, survivors, and loved ones in crisis, genuinely taking the time to understand the experiences of our community. It’s not just a process; it’s a heartfelt commitment that allows us to connect each individual and family with the medical experts and personalized resources that perfectly suit their unique situations. It’s about more than just assistance; it’s about caring for our community like family.
