Become a Media Volunteer

Sharing your experience with the press means we can raise awareness of the disease with lots of people who may not have heard of pancreatic cancer before and could help save lives.

Pancreatic Cancer Action

What does it involve?

If a media opportunity arises in your local area – for example, a local paper or TV/radio station is interested in covering a story on pancreatic cancer – we will get in touch to see if you would like to share your story.

Alternatively, if you agree, we can approach the local press with your story.

We can either contact you via e-mail or phone or become part of our PCA Story Sharers Facebook group and meet others from all over the UK who also share their story.

We will never give out your contact details to anyone without your express consent.

Do I always have to say yes?

You are never under any obligation to say yes! If we contact you with an opportunity and you are unavailable or not having a good day, that is absolutely fine. You can also be asked to be removed from our contact list at any time.
