Local and National Resources

Connecting patients, their families, and their loved ones to resources is a central pillar of the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation’s mission. The search for care centers, health systems, and treatment options can be daunting. In an effort to simplify your inquiries, the Foundation has compiled a catalogue of resources that we hope will serve as an asset to you in your time of need. This resource list offers in one publication, comprehensive information about medical and palliative care, research and clinical trials, financial assistance and a venue for emotional support for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 


When diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, one is often frightened, confused and overwhelmed.  It is at this critical time that valid and useful information is needed to make very tough decisions.  The Foundation’s Board of Directors believes that this resource list can make coping with an already stressful situation more manageable.

We welcome comments and suggestions regarding the Pancreatic Cancer Resource List for Patients and Families and encourage you to forward any changes or additions that should be incorporated into the next edition.  The Foundation’s website will, however, reflect changes and updates before the hard copy printed version is available.  The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to raising funds for early detection pancreatic cancer research, public awareness and education, and patient and family support services.
