I can imagine by now your inbox, like mine, has been flooded with coronavirus and COVID-19 updates and announcements from every organization you’ve ever encountered. We know this is not an easy time, especially for our beloved patients at high risk, so I’ll keep my message short and sweet: we are here for you!
The Hirshberg Foundation is determined to provide the support and resources our patients need at this critical time. Pancreatic cancer patients, newly diagnosed or in treatment, are extremely vulnerable right now due to compromised immune systems. We are gathering pertinent information to share with our community on this page.
Make no mistake, research will continue to advance, the UCLA Agi Hirshberg Center will not miss a beat and we will come together again. We will never give up curing pancreatic cancer, a disease that has impacted lives for decades.
We are dedicated to supporting our pancreatic cancer community, particularly as we all try to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. The Foundation is committed to providing patient support through a new interactive webinar series connecting specialists and researchers with the pancreatic cancer community. Each educational session covers topics addressing the everyday needs of patients in addition to the vulnerabilities and concerns we face during the COVID-19 pandemic. Join our Founder Agi and others on Zoom to learn and ask questions from the comfort of your home.
