Introduction

November 16 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day, and it’s the perfect time to spread awareness about this serious disease. This day was created in 2018 by the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to bring together people from all over the world who are affected by pancreatic cancer. It’s an opportunity for us to come together, share our stories, and support each other. We can also use this day to raise funds for research and treatments that will help those impacted by this deadly disease. Let’s make a difference together on World Pancreatic Cancer Day!
