Hello, 

Just joined so not sure what to say. I'm being treated for incurable secondary breast cancer and I'm on hormone treatment that is having its ups and downs 

  • Hi  and welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear about what you having to face.

    A cancer diagnosis can bring a lot of stress, confusion and many questions but yes, talking with people who are on the same journey can help a lot.

    Can I direct you to this links to our very supportive Living with incurable cancer - incurable patients only and Breast, secondary cancer groups as this will open up your concerns to a wider audience who know exactly what you are going through at the moment.

    Just follow the links I have created then hit the ‘Join This Group’ tab just under the main group name, then go to the 'Start a Discussion' tab and set up your very own Discussion and introduce yourself to the group and ask your questions.

    You may find our various Macmillan Support Line Services to be helpful - call them on 0808 808 00 00 This free service covers Emotional Support, Practical Information. Clinical Information, Financial Support and Work Guidance mostly open 8.00 to 8.00 but check the link.

    We also have our ‘Ask an Expert’. section where you can post questions to our mostly Volunteer Experts but please allow 2 working days to get a reply.

    Talking to people face to face can help a lot so check to see if you have any Local Macmillan Support in your area or a Maggie’s Centre as these folks are amazing.

    Wishing you all the very best.
