Home Get Involved Advocacy Congressional Update

Look below to see if YOUR town, city, or county was covered!

The proclamations listed on this page are official declarations made by state and local governments that chose to recognize November 2009 as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in their towns, cities, counties, or states. Thanks to the many volunteers across the country who worked to procure these, and to the elected officials who signed them, nearly 350 towns, cities, counties, and states have issued such declarations this year.

We look forward to working with all of you again next year who helped to make this effort a success in 2009; we want to reach even greater heights in 2010. Contact your nearest affiliate or Advocacy Coordinator soon for information on how YOU can help to request 2010 proclamations in your hometown, county or state. Or, just e-mail us at advocacy@pancan.org. Lend a hand in 2010 and help us to turn our voices into a movement of hope!
