“Pancreatic cancer is arguably one of the most challenging of human malignancies… Of the several types, exocrine pancreatic tumors (ie adenocarcinoma) account for 95% of all pancreatic cancers and arise from cells lining the pancreatic duct. The high case fatality rate, with approximately 43,140 new diagnoses anticipated in the United States and almost 36,800 deaths in 2010,[1] illustrates these challenges.” (Source)

To understand some of the rapid physical changes associated with the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and its treatment, patients and caregivers need to find appropriate resources for accurate information.” (Source)

“Interactive Health Communication Applications (PeopleBeatingCancer website) have largely positive effects on users, in that users tend to become more knowledgeable, feel better socially supported, and may have improved behavioural and clinical outcomes compared to non-users” (Source)
