Where can people get support when coping with pancreatic cancer?
There are many fine organizations helping to provide support for individuals and families battling pancreatic cancer. Many hospitals provide support networks utilizing the expertise of trained social workers with experience in caring for people with cancer. Additionally, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) and the American Cancer Society both provide information and support for people living with pancreatic cancer. Visit their web sites at http://www.pancan.org and http://www.cancer.org. Diet recommendations can be found at ACS Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention.
Where can people find additional information about pancreatic cancer?
Again, both PANCAN and the American Cancer Society are excellent resources for additional information regarding pancreatic cancer. The American Society of Clinical Oncology web site (http://www.cancer.net) also boasts a wealth of information for patients, family members, and professionals interesting in learning more about this disease.
