November: Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month
It is crucial that we all, researchers, doctors, patients and the community, join forces to ensure that scientific progress continues that allows outcomes for pancreatic cancer to improve through awareness, education and increased funding. This November is a time for the voice of those affected by pancreatic cancer to be heard.
Pancreatic Cancer Forum
bringing people affected by pancreatic cancer together
To launch the start of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, the Garvan Institutes Australian Pancreatic Cancer Genome Initiative (APGI) together with the Cancer Council NSW, will be hosting the inaugural Pancreatic Cancer Forum on the 1st November, 2012. The aim of the Forum will be to provide an update on pancreatic cancer research, as well as the opportunity to explore the latest tools and information with regard to patient care and support. The intimate invite-only event will include speakers from the research and clinical worlds, as well as individuals and families directly affected by pancreatic cancer.
Help us make this event a success! Although the forum is an exclusive gathering, you can still contribute. A human face and firsthand experiences are powerful ways to inspire action, so please share your pancreatic cancer story and photos .
