Pancreatic cancer is now the deadliest cancer in the UK with many people not finding out that they have it until its too late. The 5 year survival rate is just 7%, we need to invest more finding into research to allow more people to receive treatment or gain a diagnosis in time to have life saving surgery before the cancer is too advanced. Many families are being deeply affected by this horrible illness which strikes indiscriminately.

My family has been directly impacted by Pancreatic Cancer and I have seen first hand the debilitating effect that it can have on a previously healthy person in such a short space of time. I have realised that many people are unaware of the symptoms which could be lifesaving should they recognise them. As well as funding for research into treatments the government also needs to support charities to raise awareness of PC, the prognosis most people receive is not a good one, we need to do something to change this.
