The group was set up by local people who have been directly affected by pancreatic cancer, including Pancreatic Cancer Action’s Community Volunteer, Kerry Irvine and Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund’s representative, Susan Cook.

NIPanC’s vision is to end all deaths from pancreatic cancer in Northern Ireland by increasing public understanding, promoting professional awareness, funding research and supporting patients. The group has been developed in partnership with PCA and PCRF and gives a stronger voice to families in Northern Ireland who are affected by pancreatic cancer.

NIPanC also offer contact information and signpost to support lines and support groups in Northern Ireland for anyone who is affected by pancreatic cancer and needs advice or simply need someone to talk to. Please email NIPanC if you would like more information about the support available to you if you are located in Northern Ireland.
