First he was #StandingUpToCancer
Now he’s #HandStandingUpToCancer
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
Shaun is in the minority. His Pancreatic Cancer was caught early enough for surgery – unbelievably, only about 10% of patients get this chance!
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
Survival rates for Pancreatic Cancer have barely improved in 50+ years, with the 5 year survival rate being less than 7%.
Many patients only survive months from diagnosis.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
People like Shaun (and many who have lost loved ones to Pancreatic Cancer) are passionate about awareness because they’ve witnessed first hand the devastation a diagnosis can bring.
There are so very few survivors to champion the cause
The charities are amazing and do incredible work and, together with their many supporters, they really are improving the awareness message but so much more still needs to be done.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Well if you’re up for doing a handstand and #HandStandingUpToCancer please get involved!
Share a photo or a video, challenge your mates, get your gym involved in a group shot – help us get the message out there!
It’s a simple gesture but you could be helping us save lives
WHY SHOULD YOU GET INVOLVED?
If you wonder why you should get involved when you don’t know anyone affected – well at one time neither did we and we really wish we’d known then what we know now!
Pancreatic Cancer knows no boundaries – none of us are immune so it’s in all of our interests to be symptom aware
So, if you can…. GET INVOLVED AND GET YOUR HANDSTAND ON!
