Stories of Hope: Sylvia George

Sylvia George was first diagnosed with advanced localized pancreatic cancer in May of 2017. It started with unexplained back pain, a vague symptom that led Sylvia to make an appointment with her GP. After a CT scan found a spot on her pancreas, the biopsy then confirmed the diagnosis.

Here, Sylvia took a few moments to share her experience for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day.
