Warren Renews Pancreatic Cancer Month Proclamation

Statement notes diseases high mortality rate.

Todd Cohen, of Edison, came to the Township Committee meeting Thursday to help announce the launch of this year's pancreatic cancer awareness month—something he does each year.

He said he has a single reason for doing it—his father, who had been a counselor at Camp Harmony.

"I'm here today because I lost my father to pancreatic cancer," he said. "It's 10 years and nothing has changed."

He noted the same number of people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed this year—about 10,000—as were 10 years ago, and the same number will likely die of the disease—94 percent.

And, Cohen said, the disease can "affect the entire community," where fame or wealth can't provide a better outcome—Cohen noted Steve Jobs and actor Patrick Swayze are among those who have succombed to it.

"Every time I see one of these (proclamations for pancreatoc cancer), I'm reminded of how serious this is," Township Committeeman Gary DiNardo said, adding that's why the township makes the effort to help with by declaring November pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
