      Hi Tamara,

      If you click on "Resources" in the blue bar above, you should be taken to a page that provides you with a list of both local and national resources, including support groups. Additionally, you can contact the American Cancer Society (phone number is at the bottom of this page) and they can point you in the right direction. One more option is to contact the social worker at your cancer center and they should be able to help you out.

      I hope this helps!

      Hi Tamara,

      I am also in South Jersey, but did not go to a support group (yes, it was hard to find one so I just relied upon my friends). A very good friend recommended this organization which is formerly The Wellness Community, which meets in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.

      Hi Tamara, I just saw your post about face-to-face support groups in NJ. I'd like to mention that I have a radio show (based in Bala Cynwyd, PA) together with a friend of mine called Let's Talk Cancer. Although we are not a face-to-face forum, I like to think of our show as an on-air support group. You and your mom are welcome to call into our show any time, or just listen if you'd like. It's a very uplifting show. I always try to turn a negative into a positive. You can find us on Facebook at Let's Talk Cancer or go to our station's website WWDBAM.com and look under Thursday's listings for our show name. I also live near Woodbury and have been living with cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) for 2 yrs now. This type of cancer is very similar to pancreatic cancer. If there is anything I can do for you, or help you find resources available, please don't hesitate to call upon me. If you or your mom would ever like to talk, I'm always available, and we live so close by. Keeping you & your family in my prayers. I'll be following your journey.
