    A warm welcome to you from us all here at Maggie's Online Centre.

    It can feel very upsetting when someone we care about, doesnt feel like, or can't eat. It sounds a distressing situation for you - but there may be a number of reasons that he's not feeling like eating. It may depend on what his cancer is, the chemotherapy he's on, and any side effects?

    I'll message you, and find out a bit more about what's going on for you and your dad, and see what advice and support we can offer. You may like our online nutritional advisor, CarolineH, to get in touch and offer some tips?

    Warm wishes
