Where to go.

Where to go.

I found out Tuesday my brother who is also my bestfriend has his cancer back. This is the 5th time. The last time he had cancer I didn’t know how he did it. I had a breakdown fearing the worst. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

This time.. I’m wondering if this has spread or is advanced is there anything like a starlight foundation for adults? To make a wish of his come true?. 
I’m his baby sister and if I could take this for myself.. I would. 
Before covid I did activities and day courses and road trips to take his mind off things when he wasn’t stuck in hospital or being sick. But I’m in Melbourne. We’re locked down and I don’t know what to do this time? My brothers mood is frustrated and low.. I want to do something.. plan something.. but I need help?

Re: Where to go.


How is your brother going?

I'm very sorry to hear about your brother's cancer coming back.

I don't think that it's worth spending too much time worrying (I know - easier said that done) whether the cancer has come back until you know that it has.

Has your brother had some scans yet?


Thinking of you and your brother.
