Patient Stories

Patient Story: Barry Grace

In January 2014 at the age of 33, it was discovered that I had multiple tumours on my pancreas. After finding this out, I was faced with a life changing decision, to have to all of my pancreas, gallbladder and spleen removed. This operation has totally changed mine and my family’s lives forever. With only a 5% survival rate, research is definitely needed for this cancer and every penny counts. Pancreatic Cancer Action is a charity very close to my heart and I am incredibly thankful for the support they have shown me in these recent months whilst preparing for the Snowdonia climb. I hope to do another challenge next year and I promise, PCA will be involved.
