Black Friday Sale for Pancreatic Cancer Research

As we are fast approaching Black Friday (and little heads up - we are running some great promotions), we wanted to draw the attention to on charity in particular as it is dear to the heart of one of our team members. Claudia lost her father to Pancreatic Cancer exactly one year ago.

This month is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. Many of you know, at Salcura we are passionate about supporting charities, especially cancer charities. Firstly, because no words can describe the awfulness of being diagnosed with cancer, but secondly we know that many people suffer with their skin whilst undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. The immune-system is comprimised and the skin gets dry, itchy and irritated. 

As we are fast approaching Black Friday (and a little heads up - we are running some great promotions!), we wanted to draw the attention to one charity in particular as it is dear to the heart of one of our team members. Claudia lost her father to Pancreatic Cancer a little over one year ago.

A seemingly healthy man (rarely ill, never in hospital) got diagnosed mid-October and the disease unfortunately took him away only 6 weeks later. 

From the information provided by Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund we now know that the statistics when being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer are very poor - only 3% survive. A figure that was the same 40 years ago, so no progress has been made in the last 4 decades!

Salcura's team member Claudia has therefore taken the initiative to raise funds and awareness for this disease by joining a 10 kilometer run for every month of the year, with the first one having been in September. The runs will take her around the world, to places that mean something to her and her family - she is going to Italy, Germany and even the USA.

At Salcura, we love her initiative and the great work the PCRF do, that we have decided to support her! For every pound that you will spend over the Black Friday weekend, we will be donating 1% to her inititave and therefore research into Pancreatic Cancer.

So keep your eyes out for our emails, banners and every promotion that we will be running next week for Black Friday and spend away, as you will be supporting a wonderful cause!
