HASLEMERE, England, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Pancreatic Cancer activists congregate over Twitter to provide an exclusive question and answer session - all about pancreatic cancer
This Friday 22 June 2012, Pancreatic Cancer Action are hosting a special and unique event. Taking to the Twitter-o-sphere, the cancer experts are providing an extraordinary question and answer session that is open to the wider Twitter populous. Coined, Let's Talk About, the event aims to provide a very different approach to pancreatic cancer support. Whether you are currently living with pancreatic cancer, supporting a friend or relative with the cancer or simply have a question relating to pancreatic cancer, ask Pancreatic Cancer Action this Friday.
The Q&A day is designed to help and support those who are seeking advice, a word of encouragement or a virtual hug from those who know what living with the cancer is like. Pancreatic Cancer Action also aim to provide information to those who are interested in pancreatic cancer or need pointing in the right direction for further assistance regarding concerns or anxieties.
Pancreatic cancer claims so many lives every year in the UK alone but the disease, although prolific in the medical and charity sectors, continues to reside in a grey area socially. Let's Talk About aspires to start talking about the cancer in a different, more approachable way.
The Q&A provides a rare opportunity to ask a select group of cancer experts anything relating to pancreatic cancer - how does it start, is it genetic, what are the survival rates, can animals contract the disease, what the top five hospitals for pancreatic cancer - and receive live answers.
The event takes place on 22 June 2012 and is split into three 1 hour slots: 9am, 1pm and 4:30pm. Those who wish to ask a question should be logged into Twitter and use the following Twitter handles:
@OfficialPCA followed by #pancreaticcancer
Hosted by Pancreatic Cancer Action the live sessions are pancreatic cancer exclusive and are intended to raise awareness and generate more conversation surrounding the disease, both online and off-line.
