Deadliest Cancers Coalition

The Deadliest Cancers Coalition

The Deadliest Cancers Coalition is a collaboration of national non-profit organizations focused on addressing policy issues related to our nation’s most lethal, or recalcitrant, cancers, defined as those that have five-year relative survival rates below 50 percent. It was established in 2008 by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and other patient advocacy organizations and professional societies.
