Receiving the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer can be stressful and frightening for both the patient and the family. It is important to realize that help is available and you are not alone. Connect with other survivors and caregivers in a way that meets your personal preferences: join an in-person support group, connect with others online, talk over the phone or attend an educational event.
CONNECT WITH OTHERS THROUGH THE SURVIVOR AND CAREGIVER NETWORK
There is nothing quite like talking to someone who has been through a similar situation. Share information, ask questions and gain support and inspiration by talking to others with similar experiences through the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s Survivor and Caregiver Network.
Don’t walk this path alone. Support is available in many ways.
