Information for people recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Finding out you have pancreatic cancer can be overwhelming. The Newly Diagnosed Information Kit includes key information and resources to help you navigate the first few months after a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

Some of the information in this Newly Diagnosed Kit can also be found in our Living with pancreatic cancer booklet linked below, however the booklet is very comprehensive and includes information beyond diagnosis for those undergoing treatment and post-treatment.
