My dads got cancer

Hi all, so my dad(79) has got cancer and is about to go into hospital to have 2 cancers remover, it’s in the lining between his prostate and his bowel, he is going to have immunotherapy after they are removed, I have no idea what we are in for, my mum(76) has a walker, so she will do her best to help no doubt and I know she is scared but she is trying to keep a brave face, can someone please give me a phone number I can ring for support, i have been doing my homework, but I have questions, I tried ringing the hospital to get some info, but seeing staff are overworked, I got passed around.

any information would be greatly appreciated
