Our mission is to improve survival rates and quality of life
for those diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.
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.
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.
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.
Alan Shipp from Waterbeach, Cambridge donated £150 on behalf of The National Hyacinth Collection when he heard how the Fund was supporting a friend who had pancreatic cancer.
Sandyford Neighbourhood Watch in Newcastle raised £300 after they found out about the work of the Fund from cancer nurses at the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Centre at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
