The PSA focuses on the need for more information about the best treatment options, to help change the narrative around pancreatic cancer. “Pancreatic cancer disproportionally affects people of color,” states Elvin Howard, Jr., President of the foundation. The partners aim to raise awareness of the risk factors and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, and how to find proper treatment for this disease.

Along with members of the Howard family and Let’s Win Founding Executive Director Cindy Gavin, the PSA features noted pancreatic cancer specialist Dr. Allyson Ocean and BRCA awareness advocate Erika Stallings, who is raising awareness about the prevalence of BRCA mutations in Blacks and Latinx.
