APPG on Pancreatic Cancer Reception 2019
We are sorry for any inconvenience but, owing to the dissolution of Parliament and the General Election, this event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule after the election.
On behalf of Nic Dakin MP, Chair of the APPG on Pancreatic Cancer, we are delighted to invite you to attend the APPG’s annual reception to mark Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
Pancreatic cancer is the quickest killing and least survivable cancer: only 1 in 4 people diagnosed survive a year and less than 7% of those affected in England will survive for 5 years or more. These statistics have barely improved in decades.
Everyone diagnosed with pancreatic cancer should have the confidence that they will receive the best treatment, services, care and outcomes, no matter who or where they are. However, people living with and affected by pancreatic cancer have long reported unacceptable differences in the treatment, services and outcomes they experience in different areas of the UK.
Every year, Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month presents an invaluable opportunity to shine a light on the deadliest common cancer and focus attention on the needs of a cancer that is too often neglected. We would be delighted if you could join us at this event – taking place two days before World Pancreatic Cancer Day – to show your support.
At this event, we will bring together parliamentarians, professionals from across the cancer community, and patients and families affected by pancreatic cancer to unite the pancreatic cancer community around a shared ambition to ensure that the quality of care you receive is not dictated by where you live.
The reception will be chaired by Huw Edwards, BBC presenter and speakers will include Nic Dakin MP, Chair of the APPG on Pancreatic Cancer, Jo Churchill MP, Public Health Minister (invited) and people affected by pancreatic cancer.
