Pancreatic Cancer, Version 1.2017

Tribute to Debra (“Debbie”) Hampton

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. 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.
