This is very scary and daunting news. I am so sorry to hear that your husband has PC. I can understand if you feel completely overwhelmed. I think that's perfectly normal in this situation! You have already taken a very positive step by gaining access and information with this site. I think that JHU's site is very good for giving information. Plus, I have found a lot of support at this discussion board and I hope you will, as well. I would suggest contacting an oncologist who either specializes in pancreatic cancer or is very knowledgeable in that area. Here are some numbers that might help: National American Cancer Society (800) 227-2345 Cancer Care (800) 813-4673 Cancer Information Line (800) 422-6237

They may be able to tell you the name of an oncologist in your area, plus give you some information. There are also cancer centers set up around the various states who may be able to give you some information. I also got another suggestion myself, just today. Contact your local hospital's oncology unit and ask to speak to the social worker. He/she might be able to help, as well. Take care and keep us posted!
