Share your story

If you've been affected by pancreatic cancer, one of the most amazing ways you can help raise awareness and provide support to others, is by sharing your story.

Stories from our People of PanCan community

Read about the stories and experiences other patients and carers have shared with us.

Whether you’re a patient, a survivor, a friend, or a family member; sharing your story is a powerful way to remind others that they are not alone.

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.

Share your story on our blog and social media

Our People of PanCan community is made up of patients, friends, and families who have been affected by pancreatic cancer and who have shared their stories to help raise awareness of the disease and remind others that they are not alone in their journeys.

Become a Media Volunteer

If you’d like to share your story across local, regional and national press to help raise awareness of pancreatic cancer, sign up to become a Media Volunteer. All you need to do is share your story with us, and if an opportunity arises in the newspaper, on the TV, or on the radio, we will get in contact with you and ask if you’d like to represent TeamPCA and share your 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 and it’s symptoms, 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 enquiries@panact.org 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.
