This month is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.

Since the podcast began we've always brought you extra content to help boost awareness during November and 2020 is no different. Despite the pandemic.

Today you'll hear from Vanessa and Rachel.

Vanessa's dad died in July after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer earlier in the year. Vanessa talks about how a UK wide lockdown affected her family.

Rachel's husband Matt died in 2019. He was only in his early 40s and a very fit ultra runner when he was diagnosed.

Rachel shares their experience of end of life care in a hospice compared to a big hospital.
