I sure could use help in conducting a survey for PANCAN, a wonderful organization founded by one of our own, Pam Acosta. I am interested to know if any one of you know of any Afro-Americans who've died from pancreatic cancer. The reason for this interest is that I am Afro-American and as you may have read in past posts, my husband Henry died from what was believed to be pc...mystery aside, I would like to provide statistics for this worthwhile cause because it's been projected that pancreatic cancer attacks more Afro-Americans and Jewish-Americans than other ethnic groups. Trust me, this is not meant to be a racial exclusion thing, but in the interest of certain ethnics that are prone to this ugly disease, I'd appreciate it if anyone have stats or know for sure of other Afro-Americans who've died from pc, please let me know. From my previous research, I haven't unearthed many Blacks who have died from this disease...again, please help...and again this post is not to offend or exclude anyone but so I can offer some information to PANCAN so all people can be made aware, particularly ethnics who are PRONE to pc...thank you for listening...
