About Us

Mission:Cure was founded in 2017 to find effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for pancreatitis, an extremely painful, degenerative, and costly disease.

We envision a world where…

Patients will be able to prevent or treat their disease so they are no longer in pain and live longer, healthier, more productive lives.

Scientists and Clinicians will have sufficient funding and support to pursue and succeed in their efforts to help patients and cure disease.

Healthcare Payers will invest in new treatments that improve patient and employer outcomes and reduce costly crisis care and ineffective treatments.

Healthcare Providers will have the time and resources (including data and multidisciplinary care) to work empathetically with each patient to accurately diagnose and treat their health conditions and optimize health outcomes and quality of life.
