Raising pancreatic cancer awareness can be done as an individual or group all year long, but it is especially important during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November. During this month, we in the Der Lab are taking time to promote the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s initiative to Demand Better. For Patients. For Survival.
On November 16th, which is World Pancreatic Cancer Day (#WPCD), members of the Der Lab will compete to see who can wear the absolute greatest number of purple items. The lab will be filled with purple socks, shoes, pants, shirts, scarves, hats, jewelry whatever everyone can come up with!  We will have a final count following our weekly group meeting, so keep your eyes on our Twitter account to see our parade of purple contestants. For every purple item each member of the lab wears, $0.75 will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by Drs. Der, Cox, and Bryant.
