Story

So I'm running the London Marathon and I'm doing it to mark five years since losing my Dad to Pancreatic Cancer. I wanted to do something that five years ago I wouldn't have been able to do. So here it is, the biggest, most famous marathon in the world.

Around 8,800 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year. Just three per cent of those diagnosed are alive five years later - one of the worst survival rates in the world. The report found most people in the UK with the disease die within six months, and only 16 per cent are alive at the one year mark.

More needs to be done...
