Kim from Edinburgh explains why she campaigns with us
NHS worker Kim (pictured below left) campaigns tirelessly to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and improve treatment – helping us to build hope for people in Scotland. Like many of our supporters and volunteers, Kim’s family has had first-hand experience of this tough disease.
“Sadly, I’ve lost two loved ones to pancreatic cancer, my great uncle William and my Nana Mary. They died 20 years apart but little progress had been made in treating the illness over that time. In this day and age, it’s shocking that nothing has really changed. I made a promise to my Nana, who died in 2012, that no other family affected by pancreatic cancer will suffer like our family. By campaigning with Pancreatic Cancer UK, I hope I’m living up to my promise. We’ve been making a difference via the Scottish Parliament, support groups, family support. We need more awareness and research, and that’s why I do what I do.”
