Health awareness: Get purple and save lives

9600 people and their loved ones will face a pancreatic cancer diagnosis this year. And the numbers are set to increase. Early diagnosis is vital to saving lives, so it’s time to take urgent action by raising awareness of the disease.

Every day during Pancreatic Awareness Month, 1 – 30 November, there will be a short video about the people behind the disease including patient, carer, survivor stories as well as perspectives from nurses, surgeons, dietitians, supporters and researchers.

You can watch these videos here: https://purplerainbow.co.uk/pancreatic-cancer-awareness-month/ or search for the videos using #pancanstory on facebook or twitter.

For more information, and to donate, you can visit Pancreatic Cancer UK: https://www.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/fundraising-and-events/pancreatic-cancer-awareness-month-2017/
