Living with Pancreatic Cancer online support sessions

Attend one of our free online support sessions

Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer can be an isolating experience, with little chance of knowing someone going through the same thing. And, of course, the situation is made worse during the global pandemic we find ourselves in.

If you’re living with pancreatic cancer, or supporting somebody who is, we encourage you to come along to one of our free online sessions.

Meet others who understand

Sessions are relaxed and informal, with small groups of people. You will have the chance to connect with others with pancreatic cancer, share your experiences, support each other and feel understood.

A range of topics around living well

Get support with nutrition, getting the most out of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (Creon), managing chemotherapy, preparing for surgery, and more. You can find out more about the different sessions below.

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.

FAQs

How do I join a session?


Our support sessions are held on Zoom. After you book, 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.

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 the UK.

Can I join as a healthcare professional?


These sessions are for people with a personal connection to pancreatic cancer, but we have other events, training and resources for healthcare professionals to help you support your patients.
