Hi  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 OnlyFriends 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.

When you feel up to it try putting some information in your profile. This really helps others when answering. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. Just click on YOUR username, select 'Edit Profile'. Put as much or as little in your profile and you can amend it at any time - you can see members profiles by hitting our forum names.

All the very best to your dad and best wishes from Inverness.

Hi there,

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

Take care
