We’re here for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer

We're here so people don't have to face pancreatic cancer alone.  

We’re here to help people affected by pancreatic cancer make sense of their diagnosis and guide and support them every step of the way.

Our friendly specialist nurses are only a call or email away for anyone affected by this disease. They are specialists in pancreatic cancer and can talk for as long as is needed. From tailored information on treatments, managing symptoms or coping with emotions, they can recommend practical steps and bring comfort and reassurance along the way. For many, they are a lifeline.

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted us all in so many ways but for people with pancreatic cancer, we know it’s an especially worrying time. That’s why we’ve created a hub designed to give people facing pancreatic cancer during the pandemic up-to-the-minute information and guidance.
