Did you know that 7 in 10 people with pancreatic cancer never receive treatment? Not even chemotherapy. And that more than half of people die within three months of diagnosis? It’s shocking, and it’s shameful.

But does pancreatic cancer have to be a death sentence? No. With a faster, fairer treatment and care journey, and funding to make it happen, more people can be treated and have a chance to survive.

Sign our petition now and tell governments – don’t write off people with pancreatic cancer.

Yes, I’ll sign now

 

What are we calling for?

People with the deadliest cancer deserve the best treatment. We’re calling on governments across the UK to urgently fund a faster, fairer treatment and care journey for people with pancreatic cancer – so the NHS can give them the best chance of survival.

Faster: Diagnosis within 21 days of being sent for tests, and treatment within 21 days of diagnosis.
Fairer: Expert care and support for everyone, no matter where they live, or their chance of survival.
Funded: Governments must provide sustained funding to make these changes possible, so more people can be saved.

 

The Scottish Government has committed to improving pancreatic cancer survival in its new cancer strategy. But we need this and similar strategies to be funded and implemented across the UK.

Dad was still strong when he was diagnosed and he was told he was ‘the perfect chemo candidate’. But it didn’t come fast enough. Dad died just 12 weeks after diagnosis. He spent seven of these weeks waiting for his treatment to start.
