Hi I'm a new member and not sure what to do. I lost my husband who was 40 from Melanoma early in January. 6 months on it is still hard to believe that it is real and some days I wish he wold come home even though I know it's not possible. I'm doing ok most of the time but it would be nice to connect with others who are going through similar experiences.I have a 7 yr old girl who struggles at times and it's hard to see as I can't do much to ease her pain apart from be there and let her talk and listen. Does anyone know if there is anything for younger kids who have lost a parent through cancer.I know there is Canteen but that is for older kids 12 and over I think. It would be helpful for her to be able to connect with other kids as at the moment she feels like the odd one out. Thanks.
Really feel for both of you all I can say is contact the cancer council maybe they can point you in the right direction sorry i cant offer you any more direction, hopefully some one on the forum can best wishes
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.
