This is the ribbon for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness :

I walk for breast cancer, and now I begin my journey to help battle my Mother's Pancreatic Cancer. I will start by educating us with some important facts:

-Each year approx 32,000 indivduals in the US are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
-Early diagnosis is difficult, as symptoms are non-specific and varied
-PC has the #1 fatality rate of all cancers, and the #4 cancer killer in the US among men and women
-November is pancreatic cancer awareness month, purple is the traditional color
