Pancreatic cancer is a major health issue for Northern Ireland
with 273 people diagnosed in 2015.
Sadly, only 1% of those diagnosed will reach 10-year survival.
NIPanC (Northern Ireland Pancreatic Cancer) 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 group has developed out of a partnership with Pancreatic Cancer Action (PCA) and Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (PCRF) – two national charities working in this area. Our shared aim is to 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.
