Share your story on our website

The feedback we get from patients and their families is that our pancreatic cancer patient stories are very valuable, especially to those with a new pancreatic cancer diagnosis or for those undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer or having chemotherapy treatment.

If you have experience of pancreatic cancer and want to tell your story, we would be delighted to hear from you. We will not share your details with any third party organisation, nor share your story anywhere without your permission. If you would like to share your story, please fill in the form below.

How should I write my story?

Every story is different and person and there is no right way to write your story. However, here are a few questions to get you started.
  • When was the diagnosis and were there any symptoms? Did anything help to relieve them?
  • Were there any treatment options available?
  • What support did you find especially helpful? For example, yoga, cooking or talking to a friend or therapist.
  • Is there a key message you would like to get across? For example, ‘know the symptoms’, or ‘look after your body’ or ‘don’t ignore the signs’.

It is often nice to include photos with your story.
