As one of the most infamous cancer, pancreatic cancer takes the lives of about 1 percent of the US population. And it is so cruel that those taken by its claws often have a very short life expectancy.

Indeed, the average life expectancy for a pancreatic cancer patient following diagnosis is only 5 to 8 months.  And the percentage of patients that makes it past the five-year mark is only 1-5 percent. And only 20 percent of pancreatic cancer patients will survive at least 1 year following their diagnosis.
