Every day, more than 900 people around the world die from pancreatic cancer. Only 6 percent of the patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive 5 years. According to a recent global survey, more than 60 percent of people know “almost nothing” about pancreatic cancer.
To create awareness about pancreatic cancer, patient support organizations, industry, healthcare providers and politicians join forces on November 17 in Lund, Sweden.
