We raise awareness fund research & support to improve the outcome of pancreatic cancer

Story

As Noel has been gone for 10 years this year I wanted this years fundraising in his memory to be about more than raising money. 

I have decided my challenge will incorporate my cold water swimming hobby using stats connected with pancreatic cancer.

  1.  24 swims x 10 years - 240 deaths approximately per year
  2. 5 swims in new places - 5th biggest cancer killer
  3. 3 swims wearing no gloves or boots - 3 out of 5 patients that could have had surgery to cure their cancer but their diagnosis made too late 

NIPANC is the only Northern Ireland based charity working to improve the outcomes of pancreatic cancer by:​Increasing public understanding of this cancerPromoting awareness of the cancer’s signs and symptoms by both medical professionals and members of the public, funding vital research and supporting patients and their families.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 5th biggest cancer killer with approximately 240 deaths in N.I a year
