Pancreatic cancer is a major health issue for Northern Ireland
with 266 people diagnosed in 2018.
Sadly, only 1% of those diagnosed will reach 10-year survival.
NIPANC has been established to make a difference to pancreatic cancer by working to:
Increase public understanding of this cancer
Promote awareness of the signs and symptoms to both medical professionals and members of the public
To help fund vital research
To support patients and their families
NIPANC, aims to bring together families who have suffered losses from pancreatic cancer, families who are currently facing a diagnosis and survivors of the disease.
The charity has developed out of an informal group all affected by pancreatic cancer coming together for support and fundraising. NIPANC looks forward to working with other charities to help fund vital research and promote early diagnosis of the disease.
NIPANC, exists to give a stronger voice to families affected by pancreatic cancer in Northern Ireland.
Together we will provide a means of pressing for necessary priority to be given to early diagnosis; encourage and support research into the development of new and innovative treatments; and provide advice and support to patients and families affected by the disease.
Together we can change the numbers for pancreatic cancer and we thank you for your support.
