For people who do not have a pancreatic cancer in-person group locally or who prefer to stay at home, online support groups and message boards are great options. Often, online support groups are facilitated by a professional counselor and offer the same benefits as in-person groups. Message boards provide a convenient way to post questions or comments and read others’ responses.
Help and support are just a click away.
