Pancreatic Cancer UK, a charity helping people affected by the disease, has joined forces with British comedian and broadcaster Jon Holmes to produce an emotive appeal to raise awareness about the illness.
‘Lost Voices: Help us break through the silence’ is an animated spot that features the voices of many celebrities who lost their lives to pancreatic cancer, including Alan Rickman, Sir John Hurt, Aretha Franklin, Ruth Bader-Ginsburg Patrick Swayze, and Steve Jobs. Through a combination of humor, intrigue and facts, their voices deliver a powerful collective message to educate the public about the disease.
Airing during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month the video aims to drive donations for vital research breakthroughs is pivotal for this common cancer, which unfortunately sees more than half of the people diagnosed die within three months.
Lending her voice to the spot is actress and comedian Ruby Wax, a close friend of Alan Rickman who sadly lost his battle with the illness in 2016.
