The Snickers Bandana is a representation of love and memory. Snickers meowmy was raised by her grandma until she was 13 years old when her grandma passed suddenly from Pancreatic Cancer. Purple, being the symbolic color for pancreatic cancer was a huge part in the selection of this bandana. Snickers meowmy always felt like part of her was missing since her grandma died and when she got Snickers, she felt like that part was filled and like her grandma knew she needed Snickers to fill that empty space. The dragonfly and flower patterns are representative of her grandmother’s favorite hobby, gardening, and her favorite thing to see in the garden, dragonflies.
November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. Pancreatic Cancer is caused by abnormal cells in the pancreas growing and dividing out of control to form a tumor. If that tumor is malignant, it is considered cancerous. The cells can continue to grow out of control and spread to the liver, abdominal wall, lungs, bones, and/or lymph nodes and still be considered pancreatic cancer. In just 2020 alone, more than 57,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Because Pancreatic cancer is a difficult cancer to find, due to your pancreas not being easily accessible during a physical exam, most patients are diagnosed at later stages of the cancer and cannot receive surgery to remove it. Because of the tissue surrounding the pancreas, it also makes it difficult to treat. Due to these factors, researchers are constantly searching for a better way to treat this deadly cancer.
This cancer is such an important one to donate to because of its 5-10% five year survival rate. This means that most pancreatic cancer patients will pass within 5 years of diagnosis.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s vision is to create a world in which all patients with pancreatic cancer will thrive. With the money raised, we can advance scientific research of pancreatic cancer and contribute towards a future where pancreatic cancer patients can live longer lives with their condition.
With this, we will be donated 50% of the proceeds from the “Snickers” Bandana to this amazing organization so we can help other people like her family be able to combat this condition and help them live longer. 💜
