Every year, nearly 3.000 Dutch people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, unfortunately this number is still increasing. Pancreatic cancer is the second deadliest cancer after lung cancer. It is also the fastest growing type of cancer. About 93% of diagnosed patients die within six months. Every day 8 people die from this aggressive disease in the Netherlands.

In recent years, hardly any progress has been made in treating this type of cancer. This need to change. It is possible! Changes come from people who can make the difference. Innovators who are smart enough to see other solutions, idiosyncratic enough to move away from the beaten track and passionate enough to persevere; even if everyone thinks you are crazy. Such a man is Prof. Dr Casper van Eijck of the Erasmus MC; renowned surgeon and researcher with over 30 years of expertise in pancreatic cancer.
