NFL: Support Pancreatic Cancer Awareness - Wear Purple in November

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.
