Sue, 57, diagnosed in 2013 with operable pancreatic adenocarcinoma

In December 2013 at the age of 57 I presented to my GP with symptoms of Jaundice - orange coloured urine, the whites of my eyes were yellow and my skin had a yellow tinge. I did not have upper back pain or stomach pains, the only other symptom I had was recurring indigestion which I put down to eating late or eating fatty food.


Sue, 53 when diagnosed with pancreatic adenocarcinoma in 2011 - as early as January 2010 I was showing signs of symptoms of pancreatic cancer starting with a change in bowel movements, stomach cramps etc. I also had a very sore mouth. Initially I was diagnosed by my G.P with thrush and a stomach bug.

Trevor's story of his wife Christine, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009 - My wife Christine collapsed just two weeks after her 59th birthday. Two weeks later she was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer and was given less than six months to live. We had been married 41 years. I retired immediately to look after Chris & became her full time carer.
