Please join the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network on Nov. 13, World Pancreatic Cancer Day, and make the world see purple with four simple steps.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers and is the seventh most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women across the world. On World Pancreatic Cancer Day, an estimated 905 people across the globe will die from pancreatic cancer.
“The urgency for patients is real, and the time to Wage Hope is now,” said Julie Fleshman, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. “We need supporters across the globe to take action on World Pancreatic Cancer Day so we can achieve our goal to double survival by 2020.”
