Working towards our Decade of Change

In raising awareness of this horrible disease, you’ll help us in our Decade of Change. This is our overall goal to increase the five-year survival rate from 7.9% in 2021 to 13% by 2030. This can only be achieved by raising awareness of the symptoms of pancreatic cancer and its risk factors. This will lead to earlier diagnosis for individuals.

As part of our Decade of Change, we’ve been inviting people to share their experiences with this horrible disease. Whether you’re a patient, a survivor or you’ve cared for someone with it, we want to hear from you. We will then quantify this data to help us understand the trends. This will give us an understanding of the change we should lobby in government, the educational learning we provide, the research we fund and the resources we create.

Support for businesses taking part

For businesses looking to challenge their staff, we’ve introduced a great new marketing bundle that can be used to showcase their efforts. This includes cover photos for social media, social media graphics, email signature graphics, posters and more! You can view our package by clicking here.

We look forward to seeing how you all get on, as well as seeing the pictures of your progress! Our fundraising team is here to provide support as and when you need it. Reach out to them by emailing fundraising@panact.org.
