World Pancreatic Cancer Day

November 13, 2015

The 2015 World Pancreatic Cancer Day is November 13, 2015.

Worldwide there are around 280,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer each year and it is the seventh biggest cancer killer. Rates of pancreatic cancer are abnormally high among World Trade Center recovery workers. Yet the disease barely gets attention.

This cancer is chronically underfunded and has languished in the ‘too-hard-to-deal-with’ category for far too long. This is reflected in the dire survival rates between 3 to 6%, which haven’t improved for more than 40 years.

More awareness and understanding about the illness among the public, medical community and government  the resulting investment and interest in the disease will allow more people to be diagnosed in time for surgery – currently the only potential for a cure.

Get involved with World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2015.
