Pancreatic cancer is a deadly but little known disease, where only 3% of patients survive. This is the worst survival rate out of all the 22 most common cancers.
In more than 40 years, the pancreatic cancer survival rate has barely changed.
Pancreatic cancer receives just 1% of overall cancer research funding in the UK. This is despite it being the fifth largest cancer killer.
It’s also very difficult disease to diagnose correctly. By the time symptoms present themselves, it’s often already too late for the patient. The need for early screening is therefore imperative.
Walking Wales is raising funds for Pancreatic Cancer 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.
