Advanced Cancers Coalition
The Advanced Cancers Coalition (ACC) is a group of over a dozen charities representing cancers that are diagnosed at a late stage or are treatable but incurable.
Pancreatic Cancer Action is delighted to be a part of this group, working to raise the profile of the group and ensure that the voices of those with advanced cancers are heard. The discussion around cancer is often based on increasing survival rates and life after cancer. However, for many patients, this is not the case. The ACC exists to represent these patients and magnify their voices.
The coalition will be conducting research into the unmet needs of patients advanced cancer. We will work towards calling for policy based on these needs, including auditing the patient experience and making sure that patients with advanced cancers do not feel left behind.
