Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

I'm sorry to hear that your daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumour a couple of years ago and it's perfectly natural to sometimes feel down.

There are a number of groups here that you could join for support. I don't know if you are your daughter's carer but, if so, you could join the carers only group. If you're not her carer then the family and friends group is also a safe and supportive place to share your worries and concerns. There is also a group for parents of children with cancer but it's not used as much as the other two I've recommended.

To join any or all of these groups just click on the links I've created and then choose 'join this group' on the pages that open. You can then introduce yourself after selecting 'start a discussion' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your daughter's journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

Sending a supportive (((hug)))
