November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, with World Pancreatic Cancer Day held last week. To mark this event in previous years, our team have dressed in purple, but this year we joined in with the #turnitpurple campaign, decorating the Porterhouse Medical offices in purple to help raise awareness of this disease.
Pancreatic cancer is still considered largely incurable and has the worst survival rate of all common cancers. As this cause is close to the hearts of a few members of the Porterhouse team, we wanted to increase awareness of this disease and raise funds for vital research. Our creatives have designed an animation to highlight the importance of raising awareness of this disease, which you can watch here:
Additionally, to help fundraise for this important cause, some members of the Porterhouse team will be running 24 miles to commemorate the 24 people who die from pancreatic cancer in the UK every day. If you would like to sponsor our team, you can do so at our JustGiving page:
Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to letting you know how the 24-mile challenge goes!
Proud and Passionate (in purple), we are Porterhouse.
