Welcome to our PurpleStride team page! As we unite to fight against pancreatic cancer, it's essential to understand key facts about this disease:

1. Survival Rates: Pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest survival rates among major cancers, at just 10%.

2. Symptoms: Recognizing symptoms such as abdominal pain, jaundice, weight loss, and digestive issues can aid in early detection.

3. Risk Factors: Factors like age, smoking, obesity, family history, and chronic pancreatitis increase the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

4. Diagnosis: Early detection is challenging, and diagnostic tests like imaging studies and biopsy are crucial for diagnosis.

5. Treatment Options: Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.

6. Research: Ongoing research aims to improve early detection methods, develop more effective treatments, and enhance understanding of the disease.

7. Advocacy and Support: Organizations like the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) provide vital support, resources, and advocacy for patients and families.

Let's join forces to make a difference and rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer together!
