We are proud to be supporting Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) for a second year – an awareness-raising and fundraising campaign during November (1-30th). Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all the 21 most common cancers in the UK, with only around 4% of people diagnosed surviving five years or more. Shockingly, this figure has hardly improved in the last 40 years.
During the awareness month Pancreatic Cancer UK is calling for people to support its ‘Campaign for Hope’ by:
Holding a Host for Hope event (a food-related fundraising event)
- Signing up to the Trek for Hope (a trek along the Great Wall in November 2015)
- Raising awareness in local communities
- Holding a Purple Lights for Hope event (an awareness event remembering those lost to the disease and celebrating those who’ve survived it)
