Pancreatic Cancer AwarenessPancreatic Cancer Awareness Today marks the beginning of National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month- a time to educate the public about pancreatic cancer, a little-known disease, which kills one person every 17 minutes in the U.S. Pancreatic cancer, the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States, has a 99 percent mortality rate Ð the highest fatality rate of all cancers; yet it receives the least amount of federal funding of any cancer for research to find effective treatments.

The American Diabetes AssociationAmerican Diabetes Awareness Month American Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

There are 20.8 million people in the United States, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease.
