Henry Nicholson, contestant on Australia Survivor Season 2, joins the fight against pancreatic cancer

Henry, a 26-year-old from Adelaide, has become a Pancare Foundation Ambassador after losing his mother, Jenny, to pancreatic cancer earlier this year. Henry joins the global campaign to shine a spotlight on pancreatic cancer, one of the world’s deadliest cancers.

“In August of 2014, my beautiful mother Jenny was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. It was this moment where my life changed. It was this moment that I put my life on hold to take care of mum to try and beat this awful disease”, said Henry.

“We managed to turn mum’s cancer into operable and her cancer was successfully removed from her pancreas. She made a full recovery and managed to get back to work and start enjoying her life again. Not even a year went passed and another cancer was found in her body from the initial pancreatic cancer.  Luckily for us, this cancer was manageable, so we kept up our usual ways and it wasn’t until early March in 2017 that a third and final cancer came”.

“It was this moment that we found out there was no more fighting we could do, no more treatments to be done, that it was untreatable and into palliative care she went. For the last seven days of her life, she got to spend them with her family and friends to finish off her amazing life, in her home and in her bed surrounded by loved ones”. 

“I have witnessed firsthand how brutal pancreatic cancer is and the small amount of hope that comes with the disease. I want to increase hope in pancreatic cancer patients and help Pancare elevate the survival rate of this disease”.

“I am delighted to have become an Ambassador for Pancare and am dedicated to highlighting the need for greater awareness, funding and research for pancreatic cancer”, said Henry
