About Pancreatic Cancer UK

About Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one but we’re taking it on.

For too long this disease has been sidelined. We want to make sure that everyone affected by it gets all the help they need.

We provide expert, personalised support and information via our Support Line and through our range of publications. We fund innovative research to find the breakthroughs that will change how we understand, diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer. We campaign for change; for better care, treatment and research and for pancreatic cancer to have the recognition it needs.

Your support will help us...

Fund research

We aim to address the historical underfunding of research into pancreatic cancer and the issues faced by those currently living with the disease. We fundraise through a range of events throughout the year, such as the London Marathon or Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. The research that we help to fund is already making waves and making real change to the way we diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer, but there’s still more work to do.

Pancreatic Cancer UK has an active portfolio of research projects across the UK, and has invested over £7m to date on world-class research. We only fund the highest quality pancreatic cancer research and the highest calibre researchers.

Through our funding, we have been working hard to spur creative and cutting edge ideas and approaches in pancreatic cancer research. We also fund research to support, develop and attract the brightest minds in the field who will go on to make the breakthroughs of the future.

Give information and support

We have the most up-to-date information on everything you need to know about pancreatic cancer on our website or via our publications. We can help you every step of the way through diagnosis and treatment options to managing symptoms and the care you receive.

Support and to listen

Our free and confidential Support Line is a lifeline for thousands of people affected by pancreatic cancer. Our specialist nurses understand the issues you and your friends and family might be facing and their expert help and advice can support you in coping with the disease.

Be there for you

The Pancreatic Cancer UK Forum is a supportive place where everyone affected by the disease can be there for each other online any time of day or night. Our local support groups mean you can meet in person to share your experiences and our Living with Pancreatic Cancer Information Days are a chance to get support from health professionals in an informal setting.

Campaign for change

We campaign for change amongst policy makers and those working in the healthcare system calling for better care, treatment and research. On behalf of everyone involved in the fight, we demand that pancreatic cancer has the recognition it needs.
