November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month
The Healing Project wants to alert its community that November is National Pancreatic Cancer Month.
While we have made tremendous progress on many cancers, there is still much that needs to be done, particularly with regard to pancreatic cancer. While overall cancer death rates are decreasing, pancreatic cancer remains a leading killer. Currently, only 5% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year will reach the 5 year survival mark. PanCAN is dedicated to changing those statistics.
As with every chronic disease, we strongly emphasize that anyone who is capable of participating in a clinical trial do so. It is the only way to conquer this terrible disease. Please visit Clintrials.gov to view currently recruiting trials.
