Information about Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Products & Ribbons:
Of all the cancers known to man, pancreatic cancer is among the most devastating. According to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, “Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers.” An alarming report issued by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research estimates that “94% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis, while only 6% will survive more than five years. 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis.”
Based on the information and the fact that there are no early detection tools currently available to diagnose pancreatic cancer in its earliest stages, the need for more research and treatment funding is crucial.
