I have 4 family members diagnosed with different cancers at the moment it becomes too upsetting to cope with all that is happening. I have an Aunt with vulva and now vaginal cancer diagnosed in 2011.My mum had cancer diagnosed 1mth after my Aunt was diagnosed then 2wks later my Dad was diagnosed with bladder cancer, then recently my Uncle was diagnosed with brain cancer it is all so much to cope with.

Re: Support

So sorry to hear you are in this situation. Please take care of yourself and do get support from Cancer Council's nurses or talk to your friends if it helps. I understand some people seek help from palliative care early on and see the benefits. I'm yet to try this myself even though I've been in this journey for a year now. Take care
