Although David was eligible for surgery, he never made it as far as the operation. He died three weeks after he was admitted to our local hospital for a preliminary procedure.
Nearly 50% of people die within 3 months of their diagnosis. For some, like Gillian and David, it’s just days, or weeks.
With David gone, I felt helpless and adrift. Then, looking through some of the leaflets the hospital had given me I read about Pancreatic Cancer UK. The more I learned about their research, the more hopeful I felt about the future.
Researchers funded by Pancreatic Cancer UK are getting closer to finding the answers that will protect us from this ruthless killer. You can help them make that life-saving breakthrough by remembering Pancreatic Cancer UK, as well as your nearest and dearest, in your Will.
A research project which was made possible thanks to people who left gifts in their Wills, has recently made an incredible breakthrough. They’ve discovered a protein which promises to kill pancreatic cancer cells without damaging healthy tissue. It really looks as though an effective treatment is on the horizon.
