Have you recently been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer?

We would like to hear from anyone who has recently been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer and who would be happy to talk to the media.

We need patient case studies for a TV documentary which will serve as a good way to increase awareness of pancreatic cancer. If you, or someone you know, has had a diagnosis for pancreatic cancer within the last 2 months and cannot have an operation to remove the tumour, please get in touch.

You can call us in confidence on 01428 656269 or email enquiries@panact.org

Thank you.
