Strength and courage to the bravehearts fighting this silent disease..
Let’s not ignore and spread awareness..
What is Pancreatic Cancer ?
Cancer that begins in the organ lying behind the lower part of the stomach (pancreas).
The pancreas secretes enzymes that aid digestion and hormones that help regulate the metabolism of sugars. This type of cancer is often detected late, spreads rapidly, and has a poor prognosis.
There are no symptoms in the early stages. Later stages are associated with symptoms, but these can be non-specific, such as lack of appetite and weight loss.
Treatment may include surgically removing the pancreas, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Today marks the start of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. I wish I knew about it 10 years ago when my husband started displaying symptoms – I had no idea something so sinister was going on. Early diagnosis is key to survival
What’s your knowledge of Pancreatic Cancer?

In 2016, my father died on Nov 4. It was a Friday; pancreatic cancer works FAST. The last time he left his house alive, he early voted for Trump.
My dad voted for Trump, and died before he saw the outcome. https://t.co/GliXdnwOXm

WPCC Chair Jess Abelsohn makes time to fight for pancreatic cancer awareness for her mom. “My mum Rochelle was diagnosed in March 2013. She passed away 16 months later… We’re so thankful that we had that time together to make precious memories, including my wedding.”

All Ad revenue on the stream goes to charity. Since my gf’s father passed away from Pancreatic cancer couple of years ago I wanted our first charity be @PanCAN. I know ad revenue sucks on twitch but it is something. I did match the amount myself. I will be doing this every month from now on. And this is also the reason why I try to run ads during my breaks. It also removes preroll ads for x amount of time which is nice. So thank you all for being a part of this by watching and supporting the stream!

My mum told her GP she had 5 symptoms of pancreatic cancer, and that her mum and brother died of it. He told her she was worrying unnecessarily – repeatedly for a year.
By the time he arranged tests she was at Stage 4.
