As someone who has been looking for somewhere to turn I have finally found it!
In the past week I ahve found this site to be an amazing place with people opening up and sharing with each other the inner most feelings and experiences.
As a person who is watching from the outside I also want to thank the people on here for their support so far. I would also like to be here for others that are on this frightening journey; especailly for those that are watching parents and loved ones go through this.
I only joined on the weekend- but I agree- I'm really glad there is a place for people to visit and share their feelings through these difficult times. I feel better already for having written something of my own.
Thanks to the Cancer Council for creating this space.
I agree, it is a wonderful site.
I too am grateful to the Cancer Council for allowing us to share our experiences on this safe website.
Sometimes we are helped and sometimes we can make it a little easier for others just starting on their journeys.
It's always fantastic to be able to express our feelings, no matter what they are. & know that the people reading it can understand what "wavelength" we are on.
Cancer can be a very lonely experience but thanks to this website we are among like minded people who really do understand how we are feeling. We can all help each other in one way or another.
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.
