Each year The Hirshberg Foundation and our dedicated supporters eagerly await November – National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. November is when we shine a light on one of the most lethal cancers known to mankind. We are painfully aware of the statistics: most people will not survive more than a year. Far too many of us are losing loved ones.
As I reflect on pancreatic cancer awareness month, I am haunted by one question: is one month enough for all the work we have to do? There are 365 days in a year and victims of pancreatic cancer die on each one of them. If we are to change the statistics, a month will never be enough for us to complete our vital work. This is why we are dedicated to working around the clock until we eradicate this horrible disease.
I call on you to join me in renewing our commitment to battle this devastating disease. Uniting in this fight is crucial! Please act now and support us in the global movement to end pancreatic cancer.
