Hi, I am new here, supporting a young friend with a bone cancer diagnosis. Sending lots of love to all, hope to find some answers.

  • Hi and welcome to the Online Community. I'm sorry to read of your young friend's diagnosis of a bone cancer. You’ve come to the right place to talk to other people who are in the same situation and help you both get through this.

    My cancer is different, but a cancer diagnosis of any kind makes us ask lots of questions, causes confusion, stress and probably emotions we’ve never experienced before.  I see you’ve joined our Bone cancer group, this will be a good place to connect with others supporting friends making the same type of cancer journey.

    It’s always helpful to others if you write a little something (or a lot) about your friend's journey to date. You can enter it into your profile (click on your username and select “Profile”) It’s helpful to other members with a similar diagnosis who can then hopefully answer your questions. It also means that you don't have to keep writing the same thing over and over. You can amend or update it at any time. 

    To find more information covering diagnosis and treatments there are pages covering most types of cancers which can be found on our Online Information and Support Section

    The Macmillan Support Services also offer lots of information, support, financial guidance or just someone to listen. It’s free to call 0808 808 0000. Most services are available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week. Have a look by Clicking here to see what is available and we also have our Ask an Expert section, but do allow two to three working days for replies from our expert team.

    Sending you welcoming hugs B xx
