Governor Jack Markell will be raising awareness today about pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the nation’s fourth-leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Also, once it is detected, 74-percent of patients die within the first year, 94-percent within the first five years. However, there is ongoing research working toward reducing these grim statistics. The Governor will sign a proclamation in Wilmington today recognizing Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
