Kenner Family Research Fund (KFRF) is entering its third year of committed activities to develop an early detection protocol for pancreatic cancer. We are more optimistic now than we have ever been about the future of this field. Just as significant progress has been made in the early detection and subsequent treatment for breast, colon, and prostate cancers we know that advancements are forthcoming for individuals diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Each year KFRF has expanded its leadership role in creating opportunities for experts in interprofessional fields to collaborate in strategic innovation and research.

    KFRF is laser focused on the development of early detection screening methods that will improve the options for treatment and quality of life for those with pancreatic cancer. The progress made in the identification of early prostate, colon, and breast cancers serve as a model for achievement.
