The rise of cancer in the world is something that is not unfamiliar with people, and the deaths due to cancer are just rising. The cure for cancer is something that has been long-awaited, but we don’t see any breakthrough coming anytime soon. The United Kingdom is no exception to cancer rise and has been facing some huge numbers of cancer cases, and there have been a considerable number of deaths too.
The United Kingdom is dealing with different kinds of cancers, and there are plenty of them, but there is one called pancreatic cancer that has been being campaigned this month. November is pancreatic cancer awareness month and Purple Lights for Pancreatic Cancer is a movement for this disease which is supported by charities such as Pancreatic Cancer UK and Pancreatic Cancer Action and some other NGOs, the campaign involves lighting purple focal points in villages, towns, and cities all over the UK in November, this helps create awareness among the people. Near to 10,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year, and this figure is anticipated to rise in the future if the awareness for the disease is not conveyed among the people. This is a unique way to create awareness about something as dark as cancer.
Cancer has become one of the deadliest diseases out there, and the types of cancers are just increasing by the day; they need for cure and treatment of the illness is higher than ever, and we don’t see this needs being fulfilled anytime soon.
