Tom shares his experience of being diagnosed with operable pancreatic cancer when he was 42 years old.
On the 24th January 2018, out of the blue, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Up until the New Year I had been feeling fine. I had just enjoyed a lovely festive season with friends and family and everything seemed normal.
