In 2018, Immunovia reached over 24,000 people through 24 Walks in 15 US states
Beginning in April 2018, Immunovia partnered with several prominent patient organizations by sponsoring pancreatic cancer walks across the United States. Organized nationally throughout the year, these walks increase awareness about the disease and raise money for research. The walks also allow people who have lost a loved one to pancreatic cancer to organize a fundraising team in the loved one’s name.
For Immunovia, sponsoring the walks provided a wonderful opportunity to interact with participants and educate them about the risk factors and the symptoms for pancreatic cancer, as well as to build awareness about the anticipated launch of the IMMray™ PanCan-d test. The information Immunovia provided was very well received: many people remain unaware of the risk factors and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, and people were very enthusiastic about the launch of the IMMray™ PanCan-d test for early detection of pancreatic cancer in the latter part of 2019.
Mats Grahn, CEO Immunovia, concluded: “We are very pleased to be able to reach over 24,000 people through 24 walks in 15 states. Immunovia will continue to sponsor pancreatic cancer walks in 2019, increasing awareness about this dreadful disease and spreading the word about the IMMray™ PanCan-d test to more people throughout the whole USA.”
