Pancreatic Awareness Day

On Thursday 16th November, staff and pupils at Westside were encouraged to wear purple in support of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day. A total of £359.55 and €9 was raised in just one morning through this effort.

It is the fastest killing cancer due to rather general symptoms, such as stomach and digestive problems, feeling tired, loss of appetite/weight loss, as well as skin turning yellow. As a result, diagnosis is often quite late, thus the cancer would be in the advanced stages. Therefore, raising awareness of the symptoms and early detection plays a significant role in battling this disease!

“On behalf of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Gibraltar and myself, a massive thank you to all of you who supported the campaign on Thursday by wearing purple and donated! Many thanks and I'm looking forward to next year!” Mr Baldachino (staff member leading the initiative).
