Worried about my Mom

Hi Daniel 

Very sorry to hear this about your mum. I haven't any experience of this type, but my thought would be to give Kate Farnell a call at the Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust. There is always hope in everything, great you and your GP are seeking that hope. 

All the best

Hey Daniel, 

Sorry to hear that the worst is almost confirmed. 

It's definitely a good idea to see what other options are out there and lolabean is right to recommend you speak to Kate. I was going to post her contact details here, but I see she already found you on Twitter. So definitely get in touch with her before anyone else. If there's anything that can be done, she'll know about it. 

I hope she's doing better after the infection and is continuing to improve. My fingers are definitely crossed for her. 

Just as a reminder, make sure you're looking after yourself at this time too. It's easy to focus on the one with the diagnosis and forget about yourself until it's too late and you've made yourself ill too. So make sure to take some time and check in on yourself each day too. 

Good luck, and you know where we are if you need to vent or chat!
