"I Wish I Had Breast Cancer"
Meet Kerry Harvey. 24 years old. And diagnosed with pancreatic cancer – a cancer with which she only has a 3% chance of living another 12 months. Kerry wants you to know that she suffers from “cancer envy” (Pancreatic Cancer Action). She never imagined she’d feel envious of someone suffering from breast cancer, a condition with an 85% survival rate, but Kerry faces the grim prognosis of metastatic pancreatic cancer, a condition with an average life expectancy of up to six months and one that only receives 1% of research funding.
“Yes, the strap line is hard hitting and may even offend someone but it does compel you to read on – which is what we need people to do if we are to change the fortunes of pancreatic cancer (Ali Stunt of Pancreatic Cancer Action).”
