Sign the petition

Postby toodotty » Wed Nov 14, 2018 6:32 pm

Just a quick reminder to ask you to sign the petition and ask all friends, colleagues etc to sign as well. There has already been a tremendous response, 21,000+ as of last Monday but Pancreatic Cancer UK are aiming for 50,000. I have been working closely with these lovely people and they are absolutely passionate and determined to make a real difference to the way that PC sufferers are treated and the choices available to us all.

Thanks and best wishes,

Erika

Well done all, last count we were up to 26,000! So keep getting the message out there. I am also in today's paper, as part of this campaign.

Some really interesting stats coming out of all the hard work this charity is putting into making a difference. Let's hope people sit up and take note.

Hello PCUK nurses.. can you please make a printable leaflet as well and put it on the petition page. I have distributed the link far and wide and got dozens of signatures I think. I really get this petition. But, online doesn't work for everyone as a marketing tool and I also have access to various places I could drop leaflets if I could print them (waiting rooms and other places). DG

Hi All,
We are now at 42,000+ and still aiming for 50,000. So go and contact those people you may have over looked, and add details into your Christmas cards.

Best wishes,

Erika

Well done Erika for all you’ve done this week, much appreciated. Come on all, only 8,000 to go. Christmas card idea a good one!

Hi Dg,

Trying to find out for you regarding non-electronic signatures. Thanks for asking.

And thanks to everyone for signing, and to Erika for all her hard work.

Hi Erika

I lost my husband
In February 2014, diagnosed beginning of December, stage 4, he wasn’t booked in to see a consultant within 20 days let alone treatment, his chemo
Was booked in for end of Feb, he died 17th Feb. I applaud yr fight for quicker treatment. What a truly amazing and inspirational lady you are.

Thanks Cheryl, sorry about your husband, this is a truly horrific disease made worse by the fact you do not feel that the NHS is on your side. I was so angry about this I just wanted to do something about it. We now have nearly 46,000 signatures, so thank you for your support.

Hi All

If anyone buying from Amazon, did you know you can sign up to Amazon Smile (dead easy and makes no difference to your buying experience) and .5% of your purchase will be credited to the charity of your choice - Pancreatic Cancer being one of the choices. Do all your Christmas shopping in one place on Amazon and raise money. Simple!

Hi Jeni - did you have any luck with this? I really would be able to get so many more signatures if I could have a leaflet and a form.
