This book is dedicated in memory of Debra (“Debbie”) Hampton, a beloved
employee of NCCN. Debbie worked as the Manager of the Oncology Research
Program for over 12 years and was passionate and dedicated to the mission
of supporting important research to find better treatments for cancer. Debbie
lost her own three-year battle with pancreatic cancer on February 22, 2013, at
the young age of 58. Those who worked with Debbie know that she would be
thrilled to have her legacy include helping others who are going through the
difficult diagnosis and treatment for pancreatic cancer. If she could, she would
be telling people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer to keep trying and not give
up, and to live every day to its fullest as she taught us all to do. May this book
help “chart the course” for patients and their caregivers and serve to remind
people that researchers everywhere are working fervently to find a cure for this
disease.
Tribute to Debra (“Debbie”) Hampton
