How is coronovirus affecting Pancreatic Cancer Action?

Will you help protect Pancreatic Cancer Action from the impact of coronavirus?

At this time of great concern for us all, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are in good health.

We want to let you know that we are still here for you. Our office may be closed but the PCA team is still working hard remotely and we will continue to support patients and their families during this time. You can find more information about this here.

We need your support

We understand that these are scary and uncertain times. As a charity we are facing the prospect that many of the events and activities we depend on to fund our vital work are being cancelled or postponed

Pancreatic Cancer Action rely on generous donations and amazing supporters taking part in events to help fund our early diagnosis research and awareness initiatives. These funds also help us provide free information for patients and carers at a frightening and bewildering time.

Today, 26 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and sadly, 24 people die. This is the heart-breaking reality of the disease and a powerful reminder that we need to continue to take action against pancreatic cancer, fight for early diagnosis and support patients and their families.

We have many exciting initiatives planned this year, but have had to postpone some of these due to the current environment. This is disappointing; however, people are still being diagnosed and dealing with pancreatic cancer and these people still need our help and support.

Here’s what you can do:
