Kerry Harvey

We were deeply saddened to hear the news that the beautiful and inspiring Kerry Harvey passed away, aged 24, on the morning of Saturday 22nd February. 

She was a brave and courageous young woman who touched so many hearts with her determination to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer despite being very ill herself. Since her diagnosis in April 2013, she devoted a significant amount of her own time trying to raise the profile of the disease that she, like many other pancreatic cancer patients, had not heard of before her diagnosis.

Kerry campaigned with selfless vigour and, despite facing criticism, wanted to help others by encouraging earlier diagnosis and attract more funds for research. She said herself, ‘some people have to shout louder and I’m on my rooftop with a megaphone.’
 
We are so grateful to her contribution to our awareness campaign. Her strength and fortitude we and other pancreatic cancer sufferers, their families and friends are very grateful for.
 
Our thoughts are now with her husband Matt and all of her family and friends at this difficult time. 
 
We will never forget Kerry who will be dearly missed, and remain in the hearts and thoughts of all of us at Pancreatic Cancer Action.
