ITV Tonight: 'Britain's Hidden Killer' documentary
You can help save lives
Our CEO, Diana Jupp, featured in an ITV Tonight documentary: ‘Britain’s Hidden Killer‘ about pancreatic cancer, which aired on Friday 15th October.
Here’s how you can help to save lives.
Pancreatic cancer has been left behind.
In the last 50 years, pancreatic cancer survival rates have barely changed – while survival for other cancers has improved massively.
Half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. And just 7% survive beyond 5 years.
This is unacceptable.
Too many people are dying too soon because they are not diagnosed early enough.
Cutting edge research can help us make earlier diagnosis a reality and save thousands of lives a year – but pancreatic cancer research has been underfunded for decades.
We need more funding to give more people a chance of survival.
We’re transforming the future
Our researchers are close to developing the first-ever simple test for pancreatic cancer – and we’re calling on the government to invest at least £25m a year into pancreatic cancer research.
You can help too. By donating today, you can help us find the research breakthroughs that will save lives.
If you, or a loved one, have been affected by pancreatic cancer – our nurses are here for you. Contact a nurse on our Support Line: Call 0808 801 0707 or send an email.
Our lines are open tomorrow (Saturday 16th October) between 10am – 1pm, then Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 9am and 4pm, and Wednesdays between 10am and 6pm.
