The Pen Fund supports songwriters and their families affected by Pancreatic Cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells form in the tissues of the pancreas. The pancreas is a gland located behind the stomach and in front of the spine. The pancreas produces digestive juices and hormones that regulate blood sugar. Cells called exocrine pancreas cells produce the digestive juices, while cells called endocrine pancreas cells produce the hormones. The majority of pancreatic cancers start in the exocrine cells.
Nearly fifty thousand adults will be diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer this year and almost seventy five percent of them will die in the first year after diagnosis.
Booth Calder, Hanks daughter is at the helm of the project carrying on Hanks legacy of supporting Songwriters during the critical times of dealing with pancreatic cancer.
Hank understood songwriters better than anyone. He knew you didn't have to have a number 1 hit and be well known to be a Songwriter. The Pen Fund understands that also.
