The Hirshberg Foundation is dedicated to serving our pancreatic cancer patients every step of the way. Newly diagnosed patients and their families often find themselves thrust into a world they know little about while having to make important health care decisions in a timely manner. To those patients and loved ones we offer the following educational resources because ‘knowledge is power’ in this journey and we are here to support you!
