Pancreatic Cancer Action

My Story!

In January 2010 I lost my wonderful dad to PC, just eleven weeks after diagnosis. He was 75.

Since his death I have campaigned, featured in local papers, writeen to MP's and celebrities, held fundraising activities and generally tried to get the word out there! Later on that year I started a Facebook group for people going through the same as us and it has grown to be one of the most supportive places I have ever been a part of! In a a way it saddens me, after all, if it weren't for PC, none of them would be there.

Yesterday Ali asked if I would become a moderator on here, so here I am! I hope I can be of help and support to everyone at a time when it is needed so, so, much.

Good Luck Jayne, I lost my Dad 2 1/2 years ago to the awful disease. Good luck with the moderating. Also it would be great to know what the facebook page URL is


Hello Jayne,

What is the name of your Facebook group?

Hi Gina

Families In Support Of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness



Hi Jayne,

Thanks for taking on this role.

I was diagnosed last October and since then have been campaigning to raise awareness and have been very open about my cancer and my treatment.

My children are running the Paris marathon to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Action. They have a just giving website.

I wondered if we could publicise this on Facebook or here. The more money we can collectively raise for this charity the more succes we can achieve.

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Best wishes and good luck .

Hi Maz,

That's okay, I hope I can be of help and support to others going through it.

So sorry to hear you were diagnosed with this vile cancer, it's good to be open and honest about it. How are you personally coping with it and the symptoms?

Good for them! Yes, publicise away, the more raised the better. If you're a member of Facebook, join my group and publicise on there. You're assured of a warm welcome and plenty of support from likeminded people.

Thank you you too
