Our mission is to improve survival rates and quality of life

for those diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.

About Us

We are a family-established fund, set up in memory of our beautiful wife and mother Elizabeth Coteman who sadly lost her battle with this dreadful disease in 2010. We are driven, as a family to help those sadly affected in whatever way we can.

Advocacy, Befriending and Support

Those diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, along with their family and friends shouldn’t have to face this battle on their own. We are able to offer a telephone advice and support service, a face to face discussion, or advocacy on behalf of patients and families.

Find out more about the advocacy and support we can offer you and your family.


One of the Fund’s main objectives is to offer grants or awards to patients, their families and/or carers, where there is financial difficulty. We also support crucial research activity through our grants programme.

Find out more about the grants we offer and how to apply.
