CHICO, Calif. - The Facebook Live event was put in place to shed light on the 'silent disease.'
Enloe Medical Center will go live on Facebook on Feb. 28 at noon with Surgical oncologist Keith Cavaness to discuss the condition, its symptoms, how it's diagnosed, treatment options and more.
According to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, more than 14 Americans are diagnosed with the condition every day.
Symptoms are easy to miss and by the time they are detected, the condition can already be in other parts of the body, making it hard to bear. In fact, pancreatic cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S., killing more people than breast cancer, according to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
