Helping to raise funds and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer

My name is Laurence East and I am a Sergeant in Thames Valley Police…

I was recently diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer. I have created this website to help with awareness of this type of hard to diagnose and treat cancer and to promote fundraising. I am also working with a second charity called the Curtis Palmer Program, a charity for the police aimed at tackling mental health promoting the NHS 5 steps to wellbeing by going on challenging expedition- protecting those who protect others

A new challenge…

Almost 13 marathons in 13 days, 3 separate events, 2 hikes and a mamouth kayak totalling 313 miles. Averaging 24 miles a day- the number of souls lost to Pancreatic Cancer each day.
