I'm Taking it On for Pancreatic Cancer UK

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and I am Taking It On in memory of my dad Paulo Gomes who lost his battle with pancreas cancer on the 10/09/21. 

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.

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...

30 hours with a nurse on our Support Line


27 hours of early diagnosis research

I’m running 62k in November in memory of my dad who lost his battle with pancreas cancer @ 62 years of age. I want to raise awareness as this particular cancer gives you no warning until it’s too late. I want people to be aware of it and to read up about it and if they experience any of the early signs to please get themselves checked. 

Thank you to my Supporters
