World Pancreatic Cancer Day

I attended Pancreatic Cancer UK's event in the Scottish Parliament to mark World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

Their ‘No Time to Wait’ campaign aims to speed up pancreatic cancer diagnosis and improve survival for pancreatic cancer.

Currently around 900 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer per year in Scotland, with around 840 dying of the disease in the same period.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of the 20 common cancers in the UK highlighting the importance of the charity’s funding of innovative research to find the breakthroughs that will change how the disease is understood, diagnosed, and treated.
