We fund research into digestive diseases to save lives with better treatments


In June 2018, we suffered the devastating loss of a dear Mum and Nannie.

Carol Adamson was taken from us by Pancreatitis. She was an active lady and had been previously very healthy. Enjoying daily walks with her dog - Daisy.

She was taken ill very suddenly, completely unexpected. She was admitted to hospital where her condition deteriorated and then transferred to ITU. We were informed she had a 1in 3 chance of surviving. Despite all the amazing medical intervention she deteriorated even more and as a last attempt to save her,  she underwent emergency surgery.

Unfortunately it was not enough and she slipped away.

We cannot express our gratitude to Ipswich hospital- ITU staff.

Pancreatitis is such a devastating condition. 

Myself and my two sons are honouring mum’s life with a running challenge. Raising  awareness and funds for Guts UK. 

Research will help understand more and find a treatment. Hoping that things will change for others.

Guts UK funds the only fellowship into pancreatitis in the UK and have done so since the 1980s. They can’t go fast enough to find a much needed treatment for pancreatitis that saves lives.

More information on their research and Awareness Campaign can be found on their website Also a really encouraging and hopeful piece of recent research they are following that went on their website this week
