The Gourley family of four enjoy life. Yes, they have their ups and downs, but their closeness is never in doubt. All this changes when a member of the family is diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Yet, as in life, surely there is always hope?

Created in partnership with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland, Islets of Silence aims to encourage dialogue on an often-difficult subject by highlighting the effects of a diagnosis on everyday people: from patient, to doctor, to loved ones. Because where there is heartbreak, there is also room for hope, tenacity and compassion.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Islets of Silence (The C Word) are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
