CICM is proud to support Pancreatic Cancer UK at the British Credit Awards 2024
Pancreatic cancer is the toughest of cancer challenges.
It’s tough to diagnose, tough to treat, tough to research and tough to survive. But we’re taking it on. Our vision is that everyone with pancreatic cancer survives to live long and well. We’ll transform the future for pancreatic cancer by funding research breakthroughs, campaigning for changes to treatment and care and supporting people when they need it the most.
Our five-year strategy:
Finding breakthroughs. Giving hope. Saving lives.
In the last five years we have seen more progress than in the previous five decades. In the next five years, we know we can step up the pace and drive this progress even further forward, transforming how we diagnose, treat and care for people with pancreatic cancer – and ultimately saving lives.
We’re here for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer
We’re here to help people affected by pancreatic cancer make sense of their diagnosis and guide and support them every step of the way. Our friendly specialist nurses are only a call or email away for anyone affected by this disease. They are specialists in pancreatic cancer and can talk for as long as is needed. From tailored information on treatments, managing symptoms or coping with emotions, they can recommend practical steps and bring comfort and reassurance along the way. For many, they are a lifeline.
