Support groups

I was just wondering if anyone has a similar experience to me. My wife has stage IV NSCLC and is coming up to her eighth year since diagnosis which is incredible. However, I feel like we have become more and more isolated over this time. My wife has connected up with other people in a similar situation to herself. I was wondering if there are any carers in a similar situation to myself who’d like to get together for a chat and some support. More about company and sharing experiences than anything else.

Hi @pdjones,


I hope both yourself and your wife are doing well today Heart


We have a telephone based support group for Carer's that I think might be a great fit for you, they meet twice a month over the phone. If you're interested in finding out a little bit more about it, please send an email to the team on or call them tomorrow on 1300 755 632.


Otherwise, feel free to send me an email at with your details and I would be more than happy to have one of the them call you Smiley Happy
