Due June 28th, 2011 - Pancreatic cancer is the nation’s fourth leading cause of cancer death, and is the only one of the 10 most deadly cancers with a survival rate in the single digits. Nearly 75 percent of the estimated 43,000 Americans diagnosed annually die within the first year. Only 6 percent survive longer than five years. The number those affected by pancreatic cancer is expected to double by 2030, however, less than 2 percent of the National Cancer Institute’s federal research funding is dedicated to pancreatic cancer research. But…there is hope!

Mattress Firm, a Houston-based specialty-bedding retailer, has stepped to the forefront of the fight for a cure. They recently took on a new charitable focus with the “Mattress Firm Foundation” to raise awareness and funds for the fight against pancreatic cancer and would like to use their national platform to educate customers, family & friends about the need to support research efforts to help find a cure for this deadly disease. Additionally, research in this area can also lead to cures for other forms of cancer, diabetes, neurological diseases and more.

We are looking for :60 second videos, that will be used on the Web. The primary objective of the video should be to raise awareness in the community of the need for research and funding to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer. Viewers should come away with a feeling of hope for finding a cure.

We want to motivate people to pass the video along, go to www.mattressfirm.com/charity to find out more information, and ultimately make a donation. This is a great opportunity for creators to get involved and engaged in helping impact the lives of over 43,000 Americans that are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year.
