When you or loved one has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, it is a terrible shock; a support system can be critical in helping you cope with both the emotional and day-to-day aspects of this aggressive disease.

It is our hope that you will find comfort in knowing that your are not alone and that someone else's experience can offer support and encouragement.
