Pancreatic Cancer Action Network planning a big push this week

Memphis-area residents are expected to join in this week with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, the national organization working for a cure for the disease through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy, for the Sixth Annual Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. It happens on June 26, and as part of the effort more than 600 advocates from across the country will urge members of Congress to pass the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act (S. 362/ H.R. 733).

Supporters can help by participating in a national call-in on June 26 and contacting their local reps – Senator Lamar Alexander, Senator Bob Corker, Representative Steve Cohen and Representative Marsha Blackburn. To learn how to contact these Members of Congress on June 26th, visit
