November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Update: I forgot about this, but we got the postcard reminder today so thought I would share: In recognition of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month Z Gallerie will donate a percentage of sales November 6th through 12th to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in memory of Shirley Zeiden, mother of the Z Gallerie founders.

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly and least understood cancers. It is also the disease that took BT's Dad from us well before his time.

Please visit the PanCAN website to learn more about symptoms and prevention. And if you see somebody wearing a purple wristband, let the know you care.

(Iris bulbs purchased from PanCAN and planted in BT's Dad's memory)

Thanks for letting us know this. We just lost my sweet sweet mother in law to this horrible disease two and a half weeks ago. Until she got it we really had no idea what a horrible deadly cancer this is. Thanks for helping to get the word out.
