New to This

Hi I am new to this site but I feel like I need to gain some knowledge get support and be able to support others. My brother has just been diagnosed with both throat and lung cancer but although this is devastating news alone, he also has an acquired brain injury that affects his memory so can not remember anything that doctors tell him a few minutes after. I am finding it hard to support him and myself during this time. Looking forward to talking with other on here to see how they cope.

Re: New to This

Hi Glenda, Have you joined the families and friends group? There is a link at the top, if not. Sounds like you and your brother have an additional degree of difficulty to cope with. Hope you have been able to find some support with the journey. The cancer nurses in hospital can usually assist with advice and additional support info. Take car and stay strong! Sam
