World Pancreatic Cancer Day - November 16th
The 2017 World Pancreatic Cancer Day will be Thursday, November 16th!

There are lots of ways to GET INVOLVED!! Make sure you join the World Pancreatic Cancer Day social media pages to get all the information and stay up to date!
Share the content to raise awareness!

   What is World Pancreatic Cancer Day?
Thursday, November 16, 2017, is a day we will unite and make our voices heard. In the battle against pancreatic cancer, we will show the world we are in it together.
According to a global survey, 60 percent of people know “almost nothing”about pancreatic cancer. It’s time to elevate the global conversation. We will come together to draw attention to pancreatic cancer and highlight the need for greater awareness,funding and research – and most importantly, create a brighter future for people around the globe.

WHY is this special day needed?
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rates of any cancer; a little known fact and one that has barely changed in more than 40 years. We need to DEMAND BETTER.

Our strong view is that an annual World Pancreatic Cancer Day will help to bring about a much needed change in awareness levels about the disease and a focus on the need for urgent change.

Thank you so much in advance for your support. We very much look forward to working together to put pancreatic cancer on the global map.

How can I make a difference?
• On November 16th, take a picture with friends, family and colleagues to show we are in it together.
• Use #WPCD and tag @worldpancreatic so your posts can be seen.
• Visit worldpancreaticcancerday.org to see stories come together.
• Don't forget to wear purple!

World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2016 was a world-wide success:

The global social media content reached almost 3.5 million people on Nov. 17 alone.
Combined earned media efforts resulted in impressions of over 237 million, including mentions from Headline News, BBC, CTV, Ebony Magazine, CNN and The View.

350,000 people engaged (liked, commented, shared, retweeted) with the WPCD posts/tweets on social media from 49 countries!

The WPCD hashtags were used more than 25,000 times. They even trended on Twitter!

Celebrity influencers including George Lopez, Katie Couric, Mindy Kaling, Georgia Love, Viola Davis, Suggs McPherson, Robin Roberts, Rodney McLeod, Marco Rubio, and Michael Ealy helped spread the message on Twitter.

The WPCD video was played in Times Square in New York City every hour throughout the day!
