George was forever going the extra mile (or miles on his bus) for everyone that ever wanted anything. So much time for all but himself...
A loving Husband, Father and Grandad - taken so very soon and sudden. Sorely missed near and far, the globe trotter he became in 2nd half of his life.
One who always gave everything and took nothing. A workaholic in a demanding job throughout his life, earning very little but enough to get by and make sure that his family was looked after.
Out of the blue, a mass was found on the Pancreatic and with so many hurdles within the NHS system due to Covid-19, before we knew it, he had little time to fight the disease (although a true diagnosis of the type of cancer of the Pancreatic was diagnosed) and he was taken from us one fatal Late Saturday night in early March 2021.
Pancreatic cancer has been left behind. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers. Sadly, for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case.
Survival for pancreatic cancer has barely improved in the last 45 years. Pancreatic cancer is often diagnosed late because symptoms are vague, and may not appear until the disease is at an advanced stage. People often have to go back to their doctor with symptoms several times before they are referred for tests, which means they experience unnecessary delays in diagnosis and have to wait too long for treatment to start.
Alongside this, there are very few effective treatment options for pancreatic cancer, and many people are too unwell when diagnosed to undergo treatment. 7 in 10 will receive no active treatment and 9 out of 10 people with pancreatic cancer are diagnosed too late for surgery, the only treatment that can potentially cure the disease.
Always in our hearts and minds forever.
We love you Dad, Grandad, George and Georgie
