TAKE ACTION. DEMAND BETTER.

Even though WPCD is over, please continue to take action to help us raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, one of the world’s deadliest cancers. We need more attention, awareness and progress to help patients fight and survive this disease.  Learn more about WPCD2017 and  read our frequently asked questions.

KNOW THE  SYMPTOMS AND RISKS

Currently, there is no screening test or early detection method for pancreatic cancer. Some are in development – another sign of the progress happening in the field that needs greater attention and funding support.

Early diagnosis is vital, so listen to your body and don’t ignore the signs. If you have  symptoms, speak to your healthcare provider as soon as you can.

Spread the word

Spread the word on social media to help educate your family and friends about pancreatic cancer! You can also temporarily change your Facebook or Instagram profile picture to support World Pancreatic Cancer Day and post using hashtags  #WPCD or #worldpancreaticcancerday.
