Peer to peer support for people having surgery

Postby Support Team » Wed Jul 31, 2019 11:17 am

Having surgery for pancreatic cancer can be a difficult and worrying time, and it can help to talk things through with someone who knows what it is like. Side by Side is a telephone support service for people with pancreatic cancer who have had, or are likely to have, surgery to remove their cancer, for example a Whipple's operation. It gives you the chance to speak to a trained volunteer who has been in a similar situation to your own.

If you're interested in using our Side by Side service, or would like some more information about the service please visit our website where you can read FAQs and complete our online form to get in touch: https://www.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/sidebyside
