approach to pancreatic cancer support. Whether you are currently living with
pancreatic cancer, supporting a friend or relative with the cancer or simply

this Friday.
The Q&A day is designed to help and support those who are seeking advice, a
word of encouragement or a virtual hug from those who know what living with
the cancer is like. Pancreatic Cancer Action also aim to provide information to
those who are interested in pancreatic cancer or need pointing in the right
direction for further assistance regarding concerns or anxieties.

disease, although prolific in the medical and charity sectors, continues to reside
in a grey area socially.
Let's Talk About
aspires to start talking about the cancer
in a different, more approachable way.
The Q&A provides a rare opportunity to ask a select group of cancer experts
anything relating to pancreatic cancer - how does it start, is it genetic, what are
the survival rates, can animals contract the disease, what the top five hospitals
for pancreatic cancer - and receive live answers.
The event takes place on
22 June 2012
and is split into three 1 hour slots:
9am
,
1pm
and
4:30pm
. Those who wish to ask a question should be logged into
