The Gourley’s are a typical Glasgow family. Husband, wife son and daughter. Life is good to them until one of them is diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Their world is turned upside down. Yet, as in life, there is always hope. The main message throughout this play is to raise awareness of this silent killer.

“Life is a lottery but one we can win”

Life isn’t perfect but we all have a chance
