In 2002, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network declared November National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. In the United States, pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death and has a mortality rate of 99%– the highest of any cancer.
National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month strives to build public awareness about the disease and advocate for legislation that will grant more money to research cures and treatments. Everyone that has ever been effected by this horrible cancer is encouraged to share their stories to others and create/become part of a support group. Because most patients are given a life expectancy of only three to six months after diagnosis, it is especially important to increase awareness and funds.
At ePromos, we have what you need to promote National Pancreatic Awareness Month in your community or office. Purple awareness bracelets are a simple way to show your support for the cause, as well as promotional t-shirts or caps. For a more unique promotion, you could distribute custom USB drives loaded with information about pancreatic cancer and how to help. Whatever you choose, ePromos is here to help make your promotion of National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month a success.
