Cuppa

Online support session

If you’ve had a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, join this friendly online session to meet others, share your experiences and get support.

  • Each session is an hour and a half long and held on Zoom
  • Cuppas are hosted by volunteers who have all had a diagnosis themselves

If you’re supporting a loved one with pancreatic cancer, our Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppa is for you.

Who is this session for?


This session is for anybody who has had a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer – everybody is welcome, regardless of stage.

To enable everybody to share freely, this session isn’t suitable for family members, partners or friends. If you’re supporting a loved one with pancreatic cancer, please join our Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppa instead.

What can I expect from the session?


The Cuppa is very informal and there is no set agenda. It’s a chance to share whatever’s on your mind, and chat with other people who understand what it’s like.

Unlike our other online support sessions, the Cuppa is not hosted by a nurse. The volunteers who host the Cuppa can share their personal experiences, but they’re not able to give medical advice. If you have medical questions, you can speak to a specialist nurse on our Support Line by calling 0808 801 0707 or sending an email.

Upcoming dates

Thursday 27th January, 11am – 12.30pm

Join - you won’t regret it.

“Please consider joining a safe space, just for you! You will be amongst newly acquired friends. [You can] just listen and/or be listened to…you’re permitted to despair, to cry, to laugh…nothing is off limits!” – Denise from Yorkshire
