Online support sessions
If you’re living with pancreatic cancer, or supporting somebody who is, we encourage you to come along to one of our free online support sessions.
Meet others who understand
Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer can be an isolating experience, with little chance of knowing someone going through the same thing. Our online support sessions offer you the chance to connect with other people affected by pancreatic cancer, share your experiences, support each other and feel understood. They are relaxed and informal, with small groups of people.
Speak to a specialist nurse
All our online support sessions are hosted by one of our specialist nurses. You will be able to speak to them and ask any questions you might have.
Thursday 7th December, 11am – 12.30pm – Coping with Symptoms
Tuesday 12th December, 11am – 12.30pm – Managing Nutrition and Pancreatic Enzymes
Tuesday 12th December, 6pm – 7.30pm – Emotional wellbeing and pancreatic cancer webinar
Tuesday 19th December, 11am – 12.30pm – Cuppa
Thursday 21st December, 11am – 12.30pm – Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppa
We need your help!
We are currently reviewing our support service offering, and exploring how we might reach more people, in a more impactful way, with our support.
To make sure we make informed, patient-led decisions, we want to understand the experiences and opinions of pancreatic cancer patients and their families.
We want to hear from those who have used the charity’s support services, as well as those who have never been in contact with us.
If you would be willing to share your views, we’d love to hear from you, please complete the short survey below.
How do I join a session?
Our online support sessions are held on Zoom. After you register, we will send you an email with a link to join (this will be sent to you the day before the session). You can join on a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone – any device with an internet connection.
If you don’t have access to the internet, you can also dial in from a standard telephone. If you’d like to join the session in this way, please call our Support Line and we can talk you through it.
Will I have to have my camera on?
No. It’s always lovely to see friendly faces, but there is no pressure to have your camera on if you’d prefer not to.
We will do brief introductions at the start of each session, but again, there is no pressure to share more than you’re comfortable with. If you’d prefer just to listen in, that’s absolutely fine – you can say ‘pass’ and you won’t be ‘picked on’!
Can I join from outside the UK?
As a national charity, our online support sessions are for people with a connection to the UK. This means you’ll either need to be living in the UK, or supporting someone with pancreatic cancer who lives in the UK.
I'm a healthcare professional - can I join?
These sessions are just for people with a personal connection to pancreatic cancer, but we offer separate events, training and resources for healthcare professionals to help you support your patients.
Our online support sessions
Emotional Wellbeing and pancreatic cancer webinar, Tuesday 12th December 2023, 6pm - 7.30pm
Whether you’ve been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer yourself, or you’re supporting someone you love, we will talk through some of the different emotional responses you can expect and how to get the right support – from talking to friends and family, to reaching out to us and other organisations, and thinking about when you might need more specialist help.
There will be a Q&A to allow you to ask any questions you might have.
