Hi Glenys, I understand what you mean about being ignored. This part of my journey wasn't as a result of cancer, but was due to a serious workplace injury. My parents couldn't give a damn, my brother was "too busy" to care, my husband was too selfish to care. Yes that did leave me confused and angry. However, the people that did stand by me were my friends and a special Aunt. I learnt to acknowledge (I won't say accept) that my family are as they are and sadly they won't change. I hung onto the ones that did give me support and encouragement through a very long journey back out of the depths.
Basically, it's the friends and those who genuinely do care which are the ones that we want around us through our journeys. Lean on their strength and encouragement.
Thoughts of encouragement are with you.

Hi all, I've just found out that my Uncle has end stage cancer. It has hit him and us all very hard. My question is how to help my Uncle with the next part of his journey. He doesn't believe in God and doesn't have a faith per se. He's now wondering about the 'what's next'part of things.
Where can I go for information for him and for my family.
