Raising awareness for Pancreatic Cancer,
fundraising and remembering those we've lost
Jacqui Quinn passed away on the 15th April 2018, at the age of 53, having been diagnosed six months prior with Pancreatic Cancer.
Team Quinn are the family and friends she left behind, united by their resolve to raise awareness of
Pancreatic Cancer amongst GPs and the public.
Early diagnosis saves lives.
Team Quinn are on a mission to raise awareness of Pancreatic Cancer, and to raise funds for the vital work of supporting charities and institutions. In 2018, we'll be taking part in charity events as part of our fundraising initiatives, including long distance running and paramotor endurance challenges!
Retired airman Andy Quinn will be taking to the skies once again, taking up the reigns of a Paramotor. After undergoing intense training in June 2018, Andy will by flying at several charity events over the summer and attempting to cross all four UK countries over a weekend as part of an awareness campaign.
With thanks to:

Our mission is to educate GPs, healthcare professionals and the general public about the symptoms of pancreatic cancer and the necessity of early diagnosis in improving survival rates.
In the UK, almost 10,000 people are newly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year. Worldwide there are around 338,000 new cases each year, in Europe that figure is more than 104,000. Pancreatic cancer affects men and women equally with incidence increasing from the age of 45. The average age at diagnosis is 72.
Specifically, we want to make sure that anyone with a close relative whom has had Pancreatic Cancer is aware and vigilant of the symptoms of the disease.
