Share your story

Why should I share my story?

One of the most amazing things you can do to help us if you have been affected by pancreatic cancer, either as a patient or relative of a patient, is to share your story. Sharing your story is a powerful way to spread the word about pancreatic cancer. Personal stories are what brings our cause and mission to life.

Hearing someone else’s story can make a huge difference to those affected by pancreatic cancer and can help raise awareness of the disease to those who have never heard of it before and even save lives. 


How can I share my story?

 


Talk

One of the simplest and most effective ways to spread the word is to talk about pancreatic cancer with as many people as possible. Because people know so little about the disease and are shocked by the statistics, they are likely to talk to other people about it.

If you’ve lost someone or know someone suffering from pancreatic cancer, it may be hard to talk about it with people you know. However, asking them to support you by finding out more information about pancreatic cancer, symptoms and statistics, and sharing with their networks can be a great way to start raising awareness.

If you feel confident, you could organise a talk at your local community centre or other venue. We can supply you with a presentation to help.  Contact [email protected] for more information.

If you submit your story to us we will always contact you first before we use it and we will not give out your contact details to anyone without your express consent.
