Committed to raising the profile

"Representing Pancreatic Cancer Canada as their National Spokesperson has given me the best volunteering experience I’ve ever had."

We are very fortunate to have Canadian Journalist and Pancreatic Cancer Survivor, Libby Znaimer, as our national spokesperson and a member of our Board. She approached us shortly after finishing her treatment and asked how she could help us raise the profile of this devastating disease.

One reason this cause gets so little attention is that there are few survivors to tell the tale. Libby has been instrumental in putting the spotlight on both pancreatic cancer and our foundation and the results have been amazing in terms of increased profile. She recently wrote in her column in Zoomer Magazine that "I was surprised and thrilled - I don't think I've ever done anything that has reaped results so quickly".
