Share your story

If you have personal experience of pancreatic cancer or you have cared for a family member or friend with the disease, we want to hear about your experience. By telling your story we strongly believe you can help us to improve outcomes for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.

There are several ways in which you can share your story:

1. Providing the patient or carer perspective

  • at events and conferences by giving a talk about your experiences
  • by taking part in focus groups and surveys
  • reviewing our literature and information
  • becoming involved in local cancer networks.

2. Campaigning with us

  • by writing to your MP and sharing your experience
  • by lobbying your MP to attend the All-Party Parliamentary Group on pancreatic cancer.

3. Representing us at charity events and cheque presentations

  • this would be at locations near you and might require you to give a short speech 

4. Talking to the media

Microphone - tell your story

Pancreatic Cancer UK often receives calls from the media for information and help in shaping stories and features.

The charity works closely with a whole range of media, from national newspapers, to women's magazines, trade journals and local television and radio stations.

We are keen to hear from people who would be willing to demonstrate the impact of the disease upon their lives, or highlight a particular aspect of pancreatic cancer. Sharing your experience will help to raise awareness of the disease and provide you with the opportunity to share the issues you are passionate about. It is worth noting that you will often be expected to provide photos and reveal your name and other personal details when dealing with the media.

5. Providing your story for our website 

We are also keen to hear from people who are interested in featuring their story on our website or blog. We can either chat to you on the 'phone and write up your story on your behalf or we'd be delighted if you'd like to supply us with your story in your own words.
