Three Bears Foundation

Overcoming pancreatic cancer together

Raising funds and awareness in the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Jane Burn
Jane - Our Inspiration

We know what it’s like. We’ve been there too. And we are determined to fight and overcome pancreatic cancer with everything we’ve got.

Set up in loving memory of Jane Burn, the Three Bears Foundation received its name from Jane’s nickname for her son “Chrissy Bear”. With the Burn family affectionately known as “The Three Bears” Jane tragically passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2017. Since then, countless others have joined Mark and Chris in raising awareness of one of the most under-diagnosed and least understood of cancers – pancreatic cancer. 

Be part of an amazing community that overflows with hope. 

Thank you.
