I was just wondering if anyone knew of any groups in the hunter valley region for widows from cancer. I lost my Dad about 2 months ago and my poor Mum (50yrs old) is not coping too well... I find it very hard as I live hours away to look after her. Any ideas would be really appreciated.
Rachel have your tried contacting the Mater Hospital in Newcastle I had my treatment there and during that time I stayed on my own at their lodge I had lost my husband to cancer 14 months before and I found the support their marvellous. When he passed away I never thought I would cope but then I found out I had a tumor myself and almost gave up hope. I have moved on since then it took a lot to do by giving uo my job, selling my house and moving close to my daughter. Without her I don't know what would have happened. I now feel a lot my settled and even started to life my life again mainly due to the support and advice I was given while staying at the Mater. Hope this will be of some help. Jenny
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
