Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society is a national charity dedicated to both increasing survival and improving the quality of life for every Canadian diagnosed with pancreatic cancer through awareness raising, education, support and research.
A world where surviving pancreatic cancer is expected.
In June 2006, Craig Schurman Condon, started to feel unwell, experiencing acid reflux, white stool, dark urine and yellowish skin. Concerned, he visited his physician. His physician suspected Hepatitis A. When this came back negative, his physician was stumped. This is where Craig’s pancreatic cancer journey began. In July 2006, Craig was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. By September, he had passed away, at the age of 63, eight weeks from diagnosis.
In 2007, Craig’s Cause was established as a non-profit organization, in his memory. The goal was to create awareness and to fund research. In 2012 Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society was rebranded and received its national charitable business number. Since its inception, this grassroots organization has grown into a national charity recognized for our national awareness campaigns and events, our education and support programs and for our support of a diversified research portfolio. We are proud of our collaboration with international, national and provincial boards, health care organizations, facilities and professionals, and a variety of other cancer organizations and research institutes. These partnerships and fundraising efforts have raised over $2,000,000 in research funding alone.
Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society has distinguished itself from so many other charitable organizations by maintaining our mission to donate 100% of all charitable donations to awareness, education, patient support and research programs.
