My Story is about going beyond the diagnosis


This is My Story

A pancreatic cancer diagnosis impacts an individual, their family, their friends and loved ones. At the time of diagnosis, it can feel like the world stops. This diagnosis can change a person’s pace of life quickly, and it is often up to a person’s internal dialogue and external support system to find strength and tenacity. A diagnosis can be a turning point to redefine one’s life and what it looks like to live with cancer.

After a diagnosis, it can be easy to forget what came before. There is “before” and “after,” and whatever brought joy “before” may start to look different. The WPCC mission, to drive transformational change for all those affected by pancreatic cancer, empowers and educates a community for patients and families in the fight against this disease. Novocure is grateful to partner with the Coalition and work collaboratively to raise global awareness of pancreatic cancer and support each other’s efforts.

With gratitude for the patients we serve, we come together as individuals, many who have known and loved someone impacted by a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

We do this work in loving memory of Stanley K., beloved brother, dad, uncle and grandpa; we honor the memory of Paul Z., a dear friend and mentor.

Patients- unique individuals- with cancer remain at the heart of the work we do every day, and patient feedback helps refine our scientific approach. The health and lives of patients, their caregivers, and their families guide us forward in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
