Our Philosophy About Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer is a serious disease. Taking an aggressive rational stance against pancreas cancer, at the earliest possible time, supported by the best medical team, and treated in the most appropriate manner gives the best chance for pancreatic cancer survival. We believe in strong patient-physician bonds, scientifically-based pancreatic cancer treatment, and that comfort can come from knowing that everything that reasonably can be done – is being done. That the best approach is meeting cancer of the pancreas head-on and armed with the best available information.

In February of this year the U.S. National Cancer Institute published an important overview of the state of the science and medicine of pancreatic cancer. We will comment on aspects of it from time to time in the future, but as it so important, comprehensive and precise (in a departure from our usual practice) to help insure it’s wide dissemination we will show a copy it here (sans bibliography and tables, etc.)
