November Is Pancreatic Cancer Month

You may have seen my previous post on Movember – the November men’s health month fundraising and awareness event. Well, there is a reason it is ‘Movember’ and not Moctober, or any other Mo month. That is because November is Pancreatic Cancer Month, via the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

The site for the month is knowitfightitendit.org, a long yet well chosen web address as it has the three steps all men, and the people who love them, should do all the time, not just in November. This is because it is one of the most deadly if not most publicly aware or discussed cancers. Per PanCan:

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest relative survival rate of all the cancers tracked by both the American Cancer Society
and the National Cancer Institute; pancreatic cancer is the only one with a five-year relative survival rate in the single digits at just six percent.

Please educate yourself on this affliction. Get checked out if you are a man especially. And please get involved. An easy way to do so is to donate to Men’s health cuases which include pancreatic cancer via my Movember page, you can even join my Mowaukee team and solicit your own friends and family to step up as well.
