My daughter is currently in clinical remission following a diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcoma on her chest at the age of 5 weeks old.  She is now almost 9 months and in January we will be starting a six month course of maintenance chemo.  I am looking for a local support group who I might be able to join and help me through the next phase.  I feel like my husband doesn't understand my feelings and I feel very alone.  Please can anyone offer any help.  I am in SE12 in London.  Thank you.
