November is the Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. Recognition of the growing prevalence of pancreatic cancer, with the help of foundations and organizations like the Pancreatobiliary Pathology Society, can help direct resources towards research and clinical care efforts. Thursday, November 17 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day – an even more focused opportunity to recognize this disease and the numerous efforts to improve the care of those affected. Please remember to “wear purple” and spread the word.
We, the Pancreatobiliary Pathology Society, send our support to the survivors, their families and to everyone who has lost a loved one to this deadly disease. This is also an opportunity to thank our membership for their dedication to improve the clinical practice and management of pancreatic cancer and to foster tissue-based research.
