Imagine if we could unite the planet in support of a common goal. That’s the idea behind World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

November 17, 2016, is a day we will unite and make our voices heard. In the battle against pancreatic cancer we will show the world we are #InItTogether.

According to a worldwide survey, sixty percent of people know “almost NOTHING” about pancreatic cancer. It’s time to elevate the global conversation and draw attention to pancreatic cancer and the need for greater awareness.

By showing the world we are in this fight together, we hope to save lives and create a brighter future for people around the globe.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day is an initiative of the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition (WPCC). The WPCC’s mission is to drive transformational change for all those affected by pancreatic cancer. The WPCC has more than 50 member organizations from over 20 different countries. For more information about World Pancreatic Cancer Day and WPCC members, visit www.worldpancreaticcancerday.org.
