About us

We bring more than hope

We are Pancreatic Cancer UK. We go above and beyond for everyone affected by this disease. Right now, half of people with pancreatic cancer die within three months of diagnosis. Families are left with only hope to hold onto. They need more. So, we do more.

We bring more breakthroughs through research, more change through campaigning, and more support through our expert nurses. We make more noise because people have gone unheard. We are relentless because the disease is ruthless. We care more because people feel forgotten.

Because people with pancreatic cancer need more than hope.

Our vision and mission

We won’t stop until we achieve our vision – for everyone with pancreatic cancer to live long and well. Read our five-year strategy.
