Payback time

4 months ago I could hardly move, I had a tumour in my ampulla, which resulted in a whipple operation to remove it along with most of my bile duct, gallbladder, head of my pancreas and my small intestine.!!! I'm now 3 months into chemo nearly half way, getting stronger everyday. Now it's time to smash 2km in the swimming pool to give a little back to a great charity. N. E. G. U/p>

Hey everyone,

It’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and we are on Purple Alert.

I’m doing a 2km swim on the 25th November 2018 at 11am please give what you can to support me in Taking It On for pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer: the toughest cancer to diagnose, treat and survive.

1 in 4 people won’t survive a month. 3 in 4 won’t survive for a year. This is an emergency. We need change, fast. It’s time to Take It On.

With your help we can ensure we fund research that will lead to earlier diagnosis and faster treatment, saving more lives.

Thank you to my Supporters

Hi Shawn, like you I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I am 52 and at the time I was very fit and put my health niggles down to work stress. I am now recovering from the whipples procedure and half way through my chemotherapy sessions. This is a cancer few people know anything about (including myself at the start) and the more awareness we can provide to the general public the more much needed funding pancreatic cancer can receive. I wish you well in your challenge. My work colleagues this year are donating their secret santa money to Pancreatic Cancer. Every little donation helps.
