This June we will be launching three of our key initiatives in Northern Ireland at the same time. We will be raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer with the public, GPs and Pharmacy teams with the goal of increasing awareness and early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
Whether you are in Northern Ireland or another part of the UK, you can help us raise awareness of pancreatic cancer. Here are some ideas!
Support PCAware on social media
We have created some assets and suggested tweets for you to use on your social media. Encourage your friends and family to share and follow NIPanc and PCA on social media to keep up dated. Simply save and share on your favourite social media platform!
Here are some Northern Ireland specific posts!
Here are some posts for the rest of the UK!

You can also share information from the PCAware website, for example:
Join our People of PanCan community
Sharing your story is a powerful way to spread the word about pancreatic cancer and help remind others that they are not alone. It also helps us raise invaluable awareness of the disease with lots of people who may not have heard of pancreatic cancer before.

Become a Media Volunteer
If a media opportunity arises in your local area, or the press are looking for someone to share their story, then we will contact you and see if you would like to take part. You can always say no if you change your mind! Whether you are a patient, survivor, carer or have lost
someone to the disease, we would love
to share your story and have you on Team PCA as a media volunteer.
Sharing information in person
If you have an opportunity to hold an awareness stand, hand out leaflets, leave leaflets in a waiting room or simply put up the poster, we can help you with resources. We will develop a poster showing all the work we are doing in Northern Ireland and why, we will also put this on a flyer which you can hand out.
