Description

The Pancreatic Cancer Support Group meets monthly, on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. Arizona time (find your time zone).

The GI Oncology Team at Mayo Clinic Arizona offers this monthly Pancreatic Cancer Support Group. We are dedicated to addressing needs related to diagnosis, treatment, the emotional side of cancer and other challenges individuals and their families may face. The goal of the group is to provide education, hope and to meet and support others who are living with Pancreatic Cancer.

A cancer diagnosis may be stressful and scary.  Talking to someone in a similar situation may be helpful.

My father was recently diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. I am looking for any ideas that can help him to be comfortable as he goes through treatment. Any thoughts and ideas welcome. Wishing you all healing and better days ahead. Allison

Please check other feeds above. Each type of treatment presents different possible side effects and each person’s journey is different. But there are many references to this topic in previous strings. You will find this site a great source of information. Of course, your doctors and especially their NURSES should be the first resource!

For any treatment, the question should be asked "What is the average remission time". Do not fall for an answer that says
anything about response to treatment. Many times there is a response to a therapy but remission time is key.
The most successful treatment (longest remission) is from the nicholas gonzales foundation.

good luck
