In Reply to: My mom is 43 and diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 9-12 months to live! posted by Jessica on August 08, 2000 at 21:57:59:

Jessica,
Please don't despair. The initial diagnosis is always the worst. And don't listen to the statistics - they are just that. Your mother is young and with the right mind-set, she can fight this. My best advice to you is to find an on-line support group. They provide support to patients, caregivers and family members. They also have a wealth of information about the disease, which helps to understand what is going on. If I'm not mistaken, AOL has many cancer support groups. I would also highly recommend the America Cancer On-line Resources at www.acor.org. Go to mailing lists and look for pancreatic cancer. It does require you to subscribe. I have been on the lung cancer group for over 10 months and I can't say enough about how much it helps. Best of luck to you and your mom.
