Cathi Survives Cancer!

Cathi, our campaigns manager survives cancer

Published on 18 June 2021 03:50 PM

Some of you will know that in 2018 I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and the interviews below outline when I was diagnosed, how I survived and what life looks like for me now.

More than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers, yet for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case.

Its great to be working for this amazing charity Age UK Lambeth which goes overboard with helping, supporting and delivering a range of services to thousands of older people with the aim of making life better.

Pancreatic Cancer UK provides a critical service to support people diagnosed with the illness, funds research breakthroughs as well as campaigning for change.

I'm blessed to be alive and so happy to give back to the community via this fundraising skydive.

Thanks very much to all of you who helped me raise my fundraising targets for Age UK Lambeth and Pancreatic Cancer UK, 2 very supportive charities.
