Heartbroken

Started by Anonymous on 16 February 2016 at 18:52

Hello my friends, first time on here, I have secondary bowel cancer, incurable. I am coming up for my fourth cycle of chemo. I have two beautiful teenage daughters and I'm so sad I won't be around for them growing up. Each day is a heartache, anyone in a similar position x

    I am sure may other visitors will identify with your feelings about your teenage daughters and those in similar situations may share here or privately ways in which they have talked with their children. I have messaged you privately so we can talk about your personal situation in more detail and the support Maggie’s can offer you and your family.
    You may also be interested to know about a space where your daughters can access support for themselves Riprap is for under 18’s who have a parent or someone close to them who is affected by cancer. 
    Best wishes
    Robyn
