You don't mention if your Mom is having treatment but here are a couple of sites to look into.....

cancerfatigue.org

http://cancernet.nci.nih.gov/wyntk_pubs/pancreas.htm

www.cancercare.org/campaigns/fatigue1.htm

There can be many causes to the fatigue...the cancer itself, meds, depression, lack of exercise, anemia etc.

Some other suggestions I have noted are to avoid nutrient robbing foods such as refined sugar and flour products as well as fats and caffeine. Include more fruits, veggies,grains,seeds and nuts in the diet. eat less red meat and other saturated animal products. Get adequate calories & protein. Vitamin and mineral defiencies could be a cause of lack of energy....a high potency multi-vitamin w/mineral complex? Spirulina is an excellent vegetable protein source and has been used with VitC with some good results.These are a few suggestions...hope something helps Mom soon.
