Or we can keep playing stupid games like posting pointless status' that have nothing to do with anything, let alone cancer. I don't care where you like to put your handbag, I'm not going to repost some ridiculous statement about using my boobs to get out of a ticket and I don't care if you've got make up on in your selfie.
Not talking about something is the opposite of raising awareness and it helps absolutely nobody. Cancer is sadly all too common and completely heart wrenching. Many of us have been touched by it in one way or another. My father died from pancreatic cancer. I'm aware of how horrible it is for everybody it touches.
So let's just stop with the childish bullshit and use our power for good: to actually raise people's awareness of this insidious collection of diseases.
Pancreatic cancer is the ninth most common cancer in men and the tenth in women. It has one of the lowest survival rates because it is usually only diagnosed in it's advanced stages. Every year, approx 2,500 Australians get diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, less than 5% will survive beyond five years.
