Hi - are there support groups in Canberra

Hi I am Anne (63) and my GP told me last Friday evening I had a "mass" in my pancreas - she has organised a biopsy and a specialist whom I will be seeing next Wednesday. I got over that as there are 3 things that it could be 2 of which could be benign. I had to pick up the films today to take to the specialist next week and the report was included, which was sealed so I read it. I'm a bit of a mess now as the reports says I have cholangiocarcinoma with 3 metastasis with suspicious para-aortic and portal lymph nodes. My GP is on holidays now and the specialist is not in Canberra this week so I have no way to ask questions.
