One man’s pancreatic cancer diagnosis sparks major initiative to change outcomes of the deadly disease

A new research effort at the BC Cancer Agency will seek to understand pancreatic cancer at the biological level, and to improve diagnosis, treatment and survival for patients. The 2012 BC Cancer Foundation Inspiration Gala will advance this momentous undertaking, known as the Pancreatic Cancer Research Initiative.

In the four short months between his pancreatic cancer diagnosis and his death, Bob Hager set the building blocks in place to initiate change and to inspire the development of a centre of excellence in pancreatic cancer research and care in B.C.
