Team Jackie - Bath Half 2017

Team photo

Thanks for visiting the Team Jackie fundraising page.

Team Jackie were back at Bath in force last Sunday, for the 5th year. We have now raised a mind-blowing £259k  But the fight goes on, as will the running! And it's not too late to donate.  All of our 75 runners finished - some in record times (1hr21mins!) and some in record pain!

In the 4 years since Jackie's death, we have started to see progress in pancreatic cancer, including from research funded by Team Jackie.   With the hope of real promise for the future.  But the fight has only just started and we need as many of you as possible to keep running.

Jackie died of pancreatic cancer on 19th July 2012, aged just 46. With the help of so many wonderful friends and family, she fought this dreadful disease with courage, dignity & determination. Qualities that those who knew her would recognise only too well.

We have chosen to support The Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. Pancreatic cancer is known as the silent killer. By the time it is diagnosed it is usually too late. It has the worst survival rate of any common cancer – only 3 in every 100 people diagnosed will live for 5 years. This figure has not improved in 40 years and now has the lowest survival rate of any cancer. This cancer is so aggressive, by the time it’s diagnosed, 90% of people will be told that they are terminally ill and given 6-12 months to live. Pancreatic cancer is the UK’s 5th biggest cancer killer yet receives only than 1% overall research funding. With a higher profile we hope that more attention and funding will be allocated to this disease. There has been an almost criminal lack of progress on pancreatic cancer and having seen this wonderful person suffer so, it is time to change this.

With recent developments in genetics and immunotherapy, it feels at last that significant progress is within our grasp against this terrible disease.
