Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month
For the month of November we are turning it PURPLE in support of Pancreatic Cancer Action, a charity we have supported for the last three years, but this year we are doing things differently and its all about raising awareness! PCA as a charity is very close to our employee’s hearts with some having lost loved ones to the disease and the more people we speak to about it, the more we hear about other families also affected. Hardly surprising when there are over 10,000 people diagnosed every year in the UK alone, that’s the reality, it’s close to home and through raising awareness of the symptoms, you never know we might just actually save a life! Awareness is the focus, but you can’t get away from the need for donations to help keep the charity doing the good work it does…so please feel free, https://lnkd.in/gFJnp7Y what we need too though is your help getting the message out there, it costs nothing to comment, like and share the related content through the month, be part of it, it’s simple and you just might help to save a life! We will be posting regularly on all our social media pages; Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, and Facebook- to share the signs, symptoms, how you can help someone who may be affected by this cruel illness and some massively sobering facts and figures which certainly hit home. Thursday 21st is the Turn it Purple day where our offices will dress purple, take part in a bake-off, and raise general awareness and money for PCA. Alongside posts, Kate from our London office will record some informative videos we shall be sharing across our platforms, as 4 years ago Kate’s mum sadly passed away from Pancreatic Cancer. It has been her mission, and now ours, to spread the awareness to as many people as possible so that everyone knows the signs and symptoms. A linkedin share viewed by someone who then chats about it at the dinner table could alert one of their friends that something isn’t right, and can save a life. Saving 1 life from the awareness makes it all worthwhile.
