Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic Cancer is an aggressive cancer that is difficult to diagnose, tough to treat and tough to research. The statistics are shocking, a 3% survival rate, half of those diagnosed pass within 3 months, most within 6 months. Only 2% of money donated to generic cancer charities goes towards Pancreatic research and as such 24 people a day die from this cancer alone in the UK. So during my research I stumbled across Pancreatic Cancer UK, a charity solely dedicated to this cancer. During November they pushed an awareness month focussing on the number 24 asking people to do fundraisers around this, hence my Shield Run challenge.
