Back in February, Premier Choice Group ran a piece highlighting the plight of Maggie Watts who was petitioning for increased funding and public awareness of pancreatic cancer, which her husband Kevin sadly lost his battle with in December 2009.
Now, just nine months later, Maggie’s efforts have not been in vain and she successfully campaigned for a parliamentary debate to be held this September on the issue of pancreatic cancer.
Maggie’s campaign attracted a significant amount of media interest and celebrity backing, which has raised awareness of pancreatic cancer in the public eye.
