November is pancreatic cancer awareness month and Thursday 18 November 2021 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day. As part of our ongoing support of our charity partners, Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland (PCAS), we are sharing this update to help raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.
One of our support initiatives this year has been to host an online charity auction, giving everyone the opportunity to participate from home. We have some amazing items available in our auction – 100 lots in total all aimed at raising funds for PCAS. The online auction can be accessed here and bidding closes at 10PM on 18 November 2021!
Sadly, pancreatic cancer has the lowest 5-year survival rate of any of the 22 common cancers. Early diagnosis is achievable though and survival is possible. Knowing the symptoms of pancreatic cancer could save a life.
