Petition Increase investment in Pancreatic Cancer research

Research into this cancer has been underfunded for decades. It only receives 2% of the UK cancer research budget. This is 3 times less than research spent on breast cancer. By investing in researchers, earlier diagnosis & better treatments & care can be found to treat one of the deadliest cancers.

More details

More than half of patients die within 3 months of diagnosis, for my Grandfather it was just 9 days. Diagnosis of this cancer can take a long time, often with many visits to the doctors & possible misdiagnoses along the way. Around 80% of pancreatic cancer patients are not diagnosed until the cancer is at an advanced stage. At this late stage, surgery is usually not possible – this is the only known treatment that has the potential to cure the disease.
