Arthur Smith, BBC Radio 4 comedian, has experienced the devastating impact of pancreatitis first hand.

‘Pancreatitis hurts!!! In my late 40s my pancreas and I had a big bust up which I very nearly lost and which continues to this day. Fighting pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis is a big job and I happily endorse the Guts UK Kranky Panky Campaign.’

Arthur’s experience led him to go teetotal and drastically change his life to deal with this condition.

Thanks to Arthur for all your support, from everyone at Guts UK.
