Princess Margaret is the finest Cancer Hospital in Canada - and one of the best in North America. The facility ONLY treats cancer patients, and if your loved one is not being treated there, and has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer...you should find out why. PC is very difficult to treat, and should be in the hands of an oncologist who specializes in - or has experience with - the disease. The psycho-social department is outstanding. They offer tremendous counselling services and support groups. Take advantage of what is available to you. There is also an organization in Toronto called "Wellspring". They are operated by the Canadian Cancer Society and have a website. Just type Wellspring and search - or go to the CCS site - and find the link. My Dad is currently an in-patient at PMH, and is awaiting surgery this Wednesday. His treatment there has been wonderful...and the facility is aesthetically beautiful. When he was diagnosed in June, many family friends who are physicians in Toronto instilled in us the importance of treatment from doctors who specialize in this disease. Make sure Dr. MacKenzie has the knowledge required! Good luck, I wish you strength.
