, an initiative supported by The Lustgarten Foundation, is an interactive online community where patients and families can share information and experiences about new, innovative science-driven treatments and learn about the latest research, breakthroughs, and clinical trials in the fight against pancreatic cancer. There is an urgent need for patients to communicate amongst themselves and with the medical community about potentially life-changing non-standard of care treatments and clinical trials, as the incidence of pancreatic cancer is rising while the five-year survival rate remains at just eight percent.
Let’s Win is designed to:
• Connect scientists and patients for the first time, enabling two-way communication that can advance current research.
• Alleviate the countless hours of research a patient experiences when faced with a pancreatic cancer diagnosis by crowdsourcing actionable information and offering it all in one place.
• Fulfill an unmet need, as pancreatic cancer patients are typically offered one of only a few basic standard of care treatment options, none of which has proven effective long-term.

“If I could sum up my treatment it would be about change and flexibility, yet I am always searching for answers with new science.” – Anne Glauber, Let’s Win Co-Founder, pancreatic cancer patient and advocate, as quoted in the Huffington Post
A new video is available highlighting all that Let’s Win has to offer patients, including information on promising science, clinical trials and pancreatic cancer news. The cornerstone of Let’s Win is the interactive My Treatment
section, where patients describe their personal treatment plans, focusing on novel and innovative treatments they have pursued beyond the standard of care.
