Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month & World Pancreatic Cancer Day 17th November and for the month of November – Help them break through the silence this Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month – With pancreatic cancer, silence is deadly. It’s a disease that gets too little attention and funding, and far too many people are dying.
It’s up to us to speak up on behalf of those who have died from the deadliest common cancer and together fund the research breakthroughs that will transform the future.
The more people who join them, the louder we’ll be. We can’t be ignored and change will happen.
This Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month we are challenging you to walk 30k, raising awareness and funds to break through the silence and get pancreatic cancer noticed. Whether it’s taking the dog for the walk, meeting up with friends or walking on a treadmill, every kilometre counts!
Your support means our nurses can be there for those affected now and we can fund vital world-leading research and campaign for change.
It could be a sponsored head shave, giving up your favourite food, hosting a quiz night or holding a bake sale. However you chose to Do Your Own Thing this November, you’ll not only be raising vital funds, but helping to get pancreatic cancer noticed and fund research breakthroughs.
Shockingly, research into pancreatic cancer has been underfunded for decades, receiving only 3% of the UK cancer research budget, meaning survival has barely changed in the past 40 years.
Research will transform the future for pancreatic cancer. Our scientists are close to a breakthrough, but we need more funding to make this happen.
Get involved by lighting up your home or contacting a prominent landmark in your local area to light up purple on World Pancreatic Cancer Day (17th November), or throughout November.
Then raise your voice by telling your friends, family and the local media why you are lighting up.
By doing so you’ll be putting a spotlight on a disease that deserves more attention because right now people are diagnosed too late: too late for treatment, too late to survive. By 2026, it will become the fourth-biggest cancer killer.

Diabetes World Awareness Day – 14th November, 2022 –Will you help us #RewriteTheStory?
Being diagnosed early is so important for all types of diabetes. It can save lives, prevent a medical emergency, and reduce the risk of life-changing complications later. That’s why we want to make sure everyone knows the signs to look out for – and knows their risk of developing type 2.
But we need your help.
Someone is diagnosed with diabetes every two minutes. Together, we have the power to #RewriteTheStory for everyone who will be diagnosed in the future – it could even be the story of someone you love.
If type 1 diabetes is left undiagnosed, it can make you really ill, really quickly. Knowing the signs could avoid a medical emergency and save lives. Find out more about our 4Ts campaign and help us spread the word of common symptoms of type 1 diabetes.
Take on our #NailingDiabetes challenge and paint your nails blue on 14 November to raise awareness – and show others living with diabetes they’re not alone. Find out more about how you can get involved, and where to find your blue nail varnish!
Together with Tesco, we want to inspire as many people as possible to find out their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Will you help us spread the word and encourage your loved ones to find out their risk? It could help change a life.
