As more people raise awareness about the "silent killer" pancreatic cancer, major research centers of the USA have succeeded in raising funds to promote scientific and medical research. Currently there are several main directions where research centers spend the funds:
- To find new, effective treatment for patients of pancreatic cancer.
- To fund projects and programs designed to improve patient care, treatment and eventually pancreatic cancer survival rates.
- To creat a communication center for all patients of pancreatic cancer and their families.
- To hold events and activities that help improve public awareness on pancreatic cancer.
