    Hello,

    It sounds a difficult time for you all as a family. Your daughter may feel isolated and scared with everything that's going on for her. Meeting up with others experiencing the same worries can ease that stress and loneliness.

    It might be worth giving The Lodge Cancer Support Services, at Torbay Hospital, a call? There would be support for you all as a family, and a chance for your daughter to talk to someone about how she's feeling. They may also know of any local support groups that meet up in her area. I'm not sure what cancer your son-in-law has, but often site specific cancer support groups can offer a chance for a get together. (Find support groups here, on Macmillan cancer Support website).

    She's also welcome to join us here online - she can message Robyn and myself anytime if she'd like to talk anything through.

    Warm wishes

    Sue
