Pancreatic Cancer Support Group

While there isn’t currently a dedicated pancreatic cancer support group within Essex, Essex Cancer Research (ECR) recognises the profound need for such a resource. In collaboration with researchers at the University of Essex, ECR is actively exploring the establishment of a Pancreatic Cancer Support Group.

This group would provide a safe and supportive environment for:

  • Newly diagnosed patients
  • Patients undergoing treatment
  • Patients in remission
  • Family members and caregivers currently supporting someone with pancreatic cancer
  • Those who have previously supported a loved one through a pancreatic cancer diagnosis

Support Groups

Connecting with others who understand the challenges of cancer can be a source of strength, comfort, and valuable information. Support groups are often a vital resource for patients, and their loved ones, during cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

Support groups provide a safe space to:

  • Share Experiences and Find Common Ground: Talking to others facing similar situations can alleviate the stress and isolation often felt during diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
  • Gain Emotional Support: Support groups offer a space to express feelings, anxieties, and concerns with others who can truly empathise.
  • Learn and Share Coping Strategies: Participants can learn from each other’s experiences, exchange coping mechanisms, and gain access to relevant resources.
