I was diagnosed in 2009 with operable pancreatic cancer. I was told that I was a priority for a Whipple’s operation. The date was set about 8 weeks from the initial diagnosis scan.

In October 2014 (exactly 1 week before my 44th Birthday) I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I had some odd symptoms, that it turns out that I was very lucky to have, as a tumour had developed in the head of my pancreas. They meant that the tumour was caught early.

My cancer journey began shortly after I retired from teaching at 60. I was a fit and healthy woman when I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. I recovered from this and was getting back to my normal life when, three years later, 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!
