Jessica’s swimming challenge

I'm Taking it On for Pancreatic Cancer UK

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and I am Taking It On. This is deeply personal for me. Many of you know that I share a birthday with my mum and dad. This year will be our first year celebrating without my dad since he died of pancreatic cancer in March. It just so happens that 18th November, our birthday, is also Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day.

Pancreatic cancer is hard for doctors to spot and there is no simple diagnostic test. More than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months.

24 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every day in the U.K., so I am swimming 24 miles over the month. My biggest monthly swim mileage to date has been 14 miles, so this is a huge step up!

Please support me and my fundraising. Together we can help fund vital research to help get closer to a breakthrough in early diagnosis.

Pancreatic cancer is tough but together, we’ll Take It On.

My donations have funded...

141 hours with a nurse on our Support Line


127 hours of early diagnosis research
