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.
A range of topics around living well
Get support with nutrition, getting the most out of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (Creon®), managing chemotherapy side effects, coping with symptoms, and more. You can read answers to some FAQs and find out more about the different sessions 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 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, we’re not able to advise on treatment and care options for pancreatic cancer in other parts of the world. For this reason, these sessions are limited to people based in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
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.
