Sometimes in life you just get to that ‘why not’ moment, and that happened in the Spring of 2019 when my uncle’s 6 month course of chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer failed to halt the disease and he was given a terminal diagnosis. I had also lost my father to this cruel disease in 2006...

I turned 50 in September of 2019 and I just thought ‘Why not complete 50 different events with the aim of raising money for research into pancreatic cancer?’ – so 50 at 50 for Pancreatic Cancer was born #50at50forPC

My Dad, Nick Lawson and his brother Bill

Nick and Bill's childhood in Waterford, Ireland, c1946 

Survival rates for most forms of cancer have been rising, the five-year survival rates for pancreatic cancer have remained largely unchanged and shockingly low for the past 40 years, at less than 5%: this is the worst survival outcome for any of the 21 most common cancers., compare that to breast cancer where the survival rates - the average 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is 90%.

 

Money is desperately needed for research so that we can help safeguard against others losing their loved ones to this forbidding disease...

So, between my 50th and my 51st birthday I plan to take on some interesting challenges with the hope of raising much needed funds, seeing some new sights and making some new friends...

So how can you get involved or help?
