About Us

Taking steps to save lives

Through The Big Step Forward we can fund research to stamp out pancreatic cancer.

Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds you raise will have the power to make that possible. Every step you take will support world-class researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments. By walking together, we can create change to save lives.

About Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one. Tough to diagnose, tough to treat and tough to survive. Together, we can change that.

For too long pancreatic cancer has been sidelined. We want to make sure that everyone affected by it gets all the help they need.

We fundraise for research to change the story of pancreatic cancer.

We aim to address the historical underfunding of research into pancreatic cancer and the issues faced by those currently living with the disease. The research that we help to fund is already making waves and making real change to the way we diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer, but there’s still more work to do.

We’re here to support and to listen.

Our free and confidential Pancreatic Cancer UK Support Line is a lifeline for thousands of people affected by pancreatic cancer. Our specialist nurses understand the issues you might be facing and provide expert help and advice.

We’re here with the information you need.

We have the most up-to-date information on everything you need to know about pancreatic cancer on our website or via our publications. We can help you every step of the way through diagnosis and treatment options to managing symptoms and the care you receive.

We campaign for change and better understanding of the disease.

We campaign for change amongst policy makers and those working in the healthcare system calling for better care, treatment and research. On behalf of everyone involved in the fight, we demand that pancreatic cancer has the recognition it needs. Find out more about our recent campaigns.

"My walk started from Dunmurry Station on 14th May 2019 and ended 37 days later. It was an amazing experience and worth the pain. In view of the life memories, friends made, and money raised, it was an unforgettable experience."
