About Our Pancreatic Cancer SOS Support Group

Focused On The Wellness Of Pancreatic Cancer Patients

Shock. Anxiety, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, Disbelief. Imagine the distress of being told you have pancreatic cancer. It is a most brutal cancer with the lowest survival rates. It ranks third in all cancer related deaths behind lung cancer and colorectal cancers.

Supported and Sponsored through the Seena Magowitz Foundation

Besides sponsoring the SOS Pancreatic Support Group, the Foundation specializes in funding crucial Pre-clinical trial research and Clinical Trials that seek life-saving innovative treatment. It also spreads public awareness o ways to help avoid getting this brutal disease by minimizing risk factors and emphasizing the critical importance of genetic counseling and testing. Pancreatic cancer is a heredity disease caused by genetic mutations. Blood relatives and offspring of pancreatic cancer patients should be genetically tested to find out if they may be carrying the culprit gene mutation that may predispose them to getting pancreatic cancer.  The Foundation brings pancreatic cancer patients together with some of the world’s most renowned pancreatic cancer experts once a year at its main annual event.
