Lions support pancreatic cancer awareness

ALLEN PARK -- On Sunday the Lions will team up with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to help increase awareness of pancreatic cancer at the sold-out game against the N.Y. Jets.

Team president Tom Lewand will represent the Lions who helped sponsor the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s “Links for the Cure” golf and PurpleStride fund-raisers this summer that combined to raise $275,000.

Also, volunteers from the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will hand out purple wristbands as fans depart Gate A at Ford Field after the game.

The Lions were touched by pancreatic cancer during director of security Ricky Sandoval’s fight against the disease. Ricky lost his courageous three-year battle in July 2009. His wife, Gael, continues Ricky’s battle by bringing awareness to pancreatic cancer.

The problem, as I see it, is that Pancreatic Cancer goes undetected for so long because the symptoms are not easily noticable in the early stages, when it can be best be treated. The symptoms can also be confused with other medical problems, and not immediately thought of as pancreatic cancer. In my opinion, more people should be aware of it's symptoms. If there is awareness of the symptoms, it might improve survival rates. If pancreatic cancer runs in the family, and you are nearing the vulnerable age of of 50 and older (it occurs more often in people 50 and older), I would have no problem paying the $1,000+ for an annual CT scan. Symptom awareness and knowing your family history and risk factors, is the key, I believe.
