National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month on CancerConnect

National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month on CancerConnect

November 25, 2013

2peopleSun Valley, ID & Fort Worth, TX—OMNI Health Media (OMNI) announces the launch of pancreatic cancer programs for national pancreatic cancer awareness month. As the month of November brings pancreatic cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated pancreatic cancer information throughout the year.

Pancreatic cancer is often detected at an advanced stage, when it is difficult to treat—a fact that highlights the importance of prevention and early detection. The American Cancer Society estimates that 45,220 new cases of pancreatic cancer will occur in the United States in 2013, with an estimated 36,460 deaths.[1]

Staying informed with the latest news on prevention and screening is an important step in reducing your risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Access to current, in-depth treatment information can help you choose optimal care and achieve the best possible outcome.

Knowledge is power. Are you facing a new diagnosis, recurrence, living with metastatic disease, or supporting a loved one through their cancer journey?
