PANCREATIC CANCER UK

http://www.pancreaticcancer.org.uk

Pancreatic Cancer UK is fighting to make a difference. We’re taking on pancreatic cancer together: by supporting those affected by the disease, investing in research, lobbying for greater recognition of pancreatic cancer, and being there for everyone involved in the fight.

For too long this disease has been sidelined. We want to make sure that everyone touched by it gets the support and information they need. We’re here for everything you need to know about pancreatic cancer.

  • We provide expert, personalised support and information via our Support Line and through a range of publications
  • We fund innovative research to find the breakthroughs that will change how we understand, diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer
  • We campaign for change; for better care, treatment and research, and for pancreatic cancer to have the recognition it needs.

PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION

 

Our focus  is on improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and improving the quality of life for those affected by pancreatic cancer.

Currently there are over 9,000 people newly diagnosed a year with pancreatic cancer.  We’re on a mission to stamp out late detection which is the reason that the survival rate has remained at between 2% – 4% for nearly 50 years
