Pancreatic cancer support

My dad found out today, that he has pancreatic cancer. He is really
upset. If anyone out there has experience with this, and can help me out
I would really appreciate it. I can travel, and if this mayo clinic is
the place that can help him, I can travel.. Should I talk him into going
there and go with him? Is there a place in California that can help?
What can I do. I want to do the best possible thing and I hope
save his life.

You dad
So sorry, I lost my dad this past summer shortly after dx. I am now going down my own journey in terms of ruling out PC for myself due to symptoms and blood levels.

If you are in CA, I would suggest Stanford or UCSF. If you are willing to travel, John Hopkins or MD aAnderson...
