Joel Weiss traveled from his home in Toronto to New York City to get pancreatic cancer treatment that was not available in Canada when he was diagnosed in 2016.
With the support of his wife Debrah, along with the rest of his family, he made it through chemotherapy and surgery. Now Joel and Debrah are committed to helping others facing pancreatic cancer as patient and caregiver volunteers through Peer Support, a free service offered by Pancreatic Cancer Canada in collaboration with the cancer care experts at Wellspring.
