Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month 2014

EDM number 386 in 2014-15, proposed by Stewart Jackson on 22/10/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health education and preventive medicine and Health services.

That this House notes that November 2014 is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month across the UK and that 13 November 2014 has been designated the first World Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day; congratulates all pancreatic cancer charities and their supporters for the various activities being carried out to raise awareness of the disease during November 2014, including Purple Lights For Hope which aims to light up as many public landmarks as possible on 1 November; recognises that pancreatic cancer is the fifth largest cause of cancer deaths in the UK and is predicted to overtake breast cancer as the fourth largest by 2030; further notes that 8,800 people are diagnosed with, and around 8,600 die from, pancreatic cancer each year; acknowledges that the disease has the worst five-year survival rate of the 21 most common cancers, at less than 4 per cent a figure which has remained virtually unchanged over the past 40 years; and urges the Government to do all it can to bring about long overdue improvements to pancreatic cancer awareness, diagnosis, treatment, care and research.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
