Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Help us change the future for patients and their families by raising awareness for pancreatic cancer this November. Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month is a chance for us to come together, share stories, and raise awareness and funds to fight this deadly disease for everyone who is affected today, and everyone who will diagnosed in the future.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Ask your municipality to read a proclamation that states November 15 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day in your community
  • Approach local businesses and landmarks about “lighting up purple” in solidarity
  • Talk to your neighbours about lighting up purple too, or putting messages of support in their windows
  • Host a gathering or fundraiser to support pancreatic cancer research and services
  • Share your story with members of your community on social media with the hashtags #demandbetter, #worldpancreaticcancerday,  and #WPCD and be sure to tag us in your posts
  • Join our fight in supporting vital research by making a donation
