World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2018
Each November, during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, people around the globe unite on World Pancreatic Cancer Day to highlight the need for greater awareness, funding, and research for pancreatic cancer. On World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD) we are asking people to take action to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, the symptoms and risks of this disease and the urgent need for earlier detection.
Please save the date for the next World Pancreatic Cancer Day – November 15, 2018.
On November 16, 2017, people around the world united to Demand Better in the fight against the world’s toughest cancer.
The World Pancreatic Cancer Day Sweden 2017 brought together almost 300 people from 16 different countries. We would like to thank you for participating at the event. We are also very grateful for the contributions from clinicians, survivors and patient organizations that made this event possible. Through this combined effort, we are bringing greater attention, awareness, and better outcomes to this deadly disease.

On November 17, 2016, Immunovia organized in collaboration with the Swedish Cancer Patient Support Organization PALEMA and the Pancreatic Network in Denmark, the World Pancreatic Cancer Day in Lund, Sweden. The event brought together clinicians, patient organizations and survivors to share their stories.
The purpose of the day was to support the fight against pancreatic cancer and to increase public awareness of the terrible disease and to support patients with pancreatic cancer and their families.
