The Day That Changed My Life What's - The Word on Pancreatic Cancer
What awareness month is it??? Well, it is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. What is pancreatic cancer? What is the survival rate? What are the treatment plans? Are there any alternatives?
Professor Dr Li of Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center discusses her study published in the June 24 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association on the relationship between high body mass index (BMI) and pancreatic cancer. Professor Biankin is the chairman of the NSW Pancreatic Cancer Network also explores the disease and the treatments involved. Most importantly, you will also hear from those who are directly affected by pancreatic cancer.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
