On Saturday 13th August 2016, Chris and Janine Davies will be hosting a Summer Party in Oxfordshire to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action, which is a national charity that exists to save lives through early diagnosis.
The event is being held in honour of their friend Kelley Spacey, who has campaigned for more cash to help patients with pancreatic cancer after her mum, Janet Priest, died just seven weeks after being diagnosed in 2011.
The event will take place at Chris and Janine’s home: Blossom Hill, Aston Road, Ducklington, Oxfordshire OX29 7QZ. Attendees, who must be over 18, will enjoy live music, a buffet, bar and other entertainment. Tickets will be £25 per person and are available to purchase by contacting Janine at .
Janine said: “Kelley’s mum sadly died of pancreatic cancer just weeks after diagnosis. Kelley campaigns tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer, and we wanted to support her.”
Pancreatic cancer is the UK’s fifth biggest cancer killer and the survival rate of just 4% has remained at just four per cent for 40 years. Every day 26 people are diagnosed with the disease and 24 people die.
Pancreatic Cancer Action is committed to working towards earlier diagnosis of the disease so that surgery, currently the only cure, is made available to the sufferer.
Ali Stunt, Founder of Pancreatic Cancer Action, said: “We are very grateful to Chris and Janine for organising this event to raise funds and support this very important cause.”
