Gill, 63, was diagnosed with operable pancreatic cancer in 2015.

Up until the end of last May 2015 I had very little knowledge of pancreatic cancer apart from knowing that Patrick Swayze and Steve Jobs had died from it. I never, for one moment, thought I would contract it.

Victor was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on 25th May 2011 when he was experiencing persistent discomfort in his abdomen. Referral followed to a specialist who confirmed his condition.

Chic, 59, when diagnosed with a pancreatic cancer tumour in the bile duct and shoulder of the pancreas - I was diagnosed in March 2013. I hadn’t recognised any “symptoms” previously.  I was driving to work and felt quite unwell - dizzy and a bit detached. I arrived at work and didn’t feel I was getting any better.
