Thursday, November 16th, 2017

This is our day to make our voices heard. We will unite the planet in support of a common goal.
That’s the idea behind World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, and more people need to know about it and the need for more funding. It’s time to elevate the global conversation and show the world that we are united in our fight against #pancreaticcancer and #InItTogether

The World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition (WPCC), a global alliance in the fight against pancreatic cancer, will convene for its second meeting in Montreal May 2 – 4, 2017. Pancreatic Cancer Canada is honoured to be co-hosting the event with Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society. The coalition unites over 60 pancreatic cancer organizations and advocacy groups from around the world who collaborate for the collective good of all people affected by pancreatic cancer . WPCC works together to drive transformational change for all those affected by pancreatic cancer.

Read Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's  letter to officially welcome WPCC delegates to Canada.
