Funding For Pancreatic Cancer Research

EDM number 614 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 29/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health finance, Medicine and Research and innovation.

That this House notes that there is a lack of awareness of pancreatic cancer, which sees 9,600 people diagnosed with it each year with only seven per cent of people surviving five years beyond diagnosis; calls for action to be taken to increase funding of pancreatic cancer research which has only 1.9 per cent of the UK’s cancer research budget allocated towards it; and welcomes November’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and hopes that next year's campaign will see greater publicity in order to help find a cure for sufferers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
