Team Paul

Team Paul is fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK

The day after the above photo was taken, my Mums 50th Birthday, we got confirmation that my Dad had a tumour on his pancreas.  The tumour was found incidentally when he got a scan for a stomach infection.

At the time we knew very little of pancreatic cancer and how deadly a cancer it is. With only around 20% diagnosed surviving 1 year and around 5% surviving 5 years.

We were devastated and terrified at the diagnosis.  However, we were fortunate that it had been detected at an early stage.

My Dad had surgery to remove most of his pancreas (distal pancreatectomy) and his spleen removed (splenectomy) on Thursday 30th December 2021.  The surgery was successful in removing the neuroendocrine tumour.

After a scan in April 2022, it was confirmed that my Dad was cancer free.  We are so grateful that his pancreatic cancer had been detected at an early stage.

So as Team Paul – my Dad (Paul), my Mum (Tracy), Stephen, Gail, Lee, Harry, Chris, Angie, Callum, Ryan, Sharon, Joe, Chloe, and myself along with the dogs, Riley & Hugo – will be taking part in The Big Step Forward on Saturday 16th July at Arthur’s Seat Edinburgh, looking to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer. 

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one.  Tough to diagnose, tough to treat, and tough to survive.

Every step will support world-leading researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments. By walking together, we can create change to save lives.

Thanks,

Luke
