Brian - diagnosed in 2014 with inoperable pancreatice cancer. One day my son questioned me about my health (are you all right Dad?). In fact I was and had planned a week walking in the Lake District two weeks later. The very next day I became jaundiced. An urgent visit to the GP and hospital, and later that day, the doctor informed me that I may have a tumour.

My cancer journey began shortly after I retired from teaching at 60. I was a fit and healthy woman looking forward to spending time with her grandchildren and having time for travel and hobbies when I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. I had surgery followed by 9 months of gruelling chemotherapy. I recovered from this and was getting back to my normal life. Three years later, after one of my regular check-ups I was staggered to be told they had found something in my pancreas. In my naivety I didn't think I could have cancer twice!!

Steve, 58, diagnosed in 2012 with inoperable pancreatic adenocarcinoma in the uncinate process - With hindsight, losing 15Kg in a little over two months should have rung alarm bells, but I was perfectly fit, active and really enjoying life.
