Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

November marks Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about one of the most challenging and often treatment resistant forms of cancer. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers at 12.5% and is expected to take more Aussie lives than breast cancer. It is known for its silent progression, making early detection crucial for successful treatment.

PanKind’s initiative during this month is to shine a light on the importance of early detection and advocate for increased research funding. Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month provides a platform to educate communities about risk factors, symptoms, and the need for regular screenings.

Get involved by participating in awareness events, sharing educational content on social media, or organising fundraisers for your local community. Contributions go towards supporting patients and families affected by pancreatic cancer and funding research initiatives aimed at improving early detection methods and treatment options.

Together, we can make a significant impact in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Join us in spreading awareness, supporting those affected, and working towards a future where early detection increases survival rates for individuals facing this challenging diagnosis.
