A Message From Cathy Griffith

Our mission is to one day see a world without pancreatic cancer. And for that matter, to see cancer of all types completely eliminated from our world!

How do we go about doing that? The answer is simple: by giving it to God and asking His Spirit to guide us as instruments to help “FUND a cure!” What makes us unique from other cancer research foundations is that our mission is driven by the Holy Spirit. With God in control, we believe that we will see a cure for pancreatic cancer. CONTINUE READING
