my dad 74 has just been told theres nothing can be done for his liver cancer and cirrhosis
Hi saor alba 2020 welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear about your dad.
A cancer diagnosis can bring a lot of stress, confusion and many questions on all the family but talking with people who are on the same journey can help a lot.
You may also find our Carers Only, Friends and Family and Supporting Someone with Incurable Cancer groups to be good places where you can connect with others support family through their cancer journey but more importantly the carers care for each other.
Just follow the links I have created then hit the ‘Join This Group’ tabs 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.

I’ve just joined the site, and I’m in a similar situation. We’ve just found out that nothing can be done for my auntie who has pancreatic & bile duct cancer. Waiting to find out whether it’s in her lung too :/
do message if you’d like to talk. I can understand how upsetting it all is trying to come to terms with something like this
