Knowsley’s Greystone and Archway Road bridgeswill be lit purple on Thursday 16 November to mark World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer is an annual campaign that takes place during November’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and supports the global awareness initiative, World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
It’s about raising awareness of both pancreatic cancer and the symptoms to increase the number of people diagnosed sooner.
Symptoms of pancreatic cancer
The signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include indigestion, pain in your stomach or back, changes to your poo, unexplained weight loss and jaundice.
Some of these symptoms are very common and can be caused by other conditions.
Having the symptoms does note mean you definitely have pancreatic cancer, but it’s important to get checked by a GP.
If your symptoms are caused by cancer, finding it early may mean it’s easier to treat
