NFL: Support Pancreatic Cancer Awareness - Wear Purple in November
This petition had 2,547 supporters
EVERYONE is aware of breast cancer, and yet everywhere you look you see pink.
However, no one seems to know that the color PURPLE represents a cancer with nearly the same number of deaths annually as breast cancer; a cancer in which most patients die within the first year after diagnosis; a cancer in which the likelihood of a patient surviving 5 years is a mere 6% (compared to breast cancer's 90%); a cancer that receives the least federal funding of all of the top ten cancer killers; a cancer that currently has no means for early detection; a cancer that will likely jump from #4 to #2 in ranking of top cancer killers within the next decade; a cancer that affects both men and women, young and old.
It's time for EVERYONE to KNOW IT. FIGHT IT. END IT.
