follow up from last nights special live chat Talking with children

Hello,
Last night on the Live Chat I said I would post the weblinks of the sites we mentioned, they are;
www.siblinks.org
this site is where children can talk with other kids in a similar situation

www.riprap.org.uk/
Another website where children can talk with others whose parent has been affected by cancer

www.willowfoundation.org.uk/Willow/Home
this charity provides special days for patients and their families aged 16-40 who are affected by cancer

www.honeyrosefoundation.co.uk/
And this one does the same thing for the over 40’s

www.winstonswish.org.uk/
Winston’s wish is the charity dedicated to supporting bereaved children when a parent has died, they also give advise an support to those facing the death of a parent.

Thank you again to all of you who joined us last night

Best wishes

Thanks alot - have clearly lost plot on dates (!) so will look at these,

Hiya,

Thank you for posting those details - it was moving so fast last night I didn’t have time to jot the details down !!

Thank you for also giving us the opportunity to discuss our concerns and feelings in a safe environment amongst Mums who fully understand where each of us is coming from. I haven’t worded that well but hope you understand what I am trying to say…mixture of Steroids and Chemo !!!

Hi just to say the willow foundation is definitely worth looking into, my husband, myself and youngest son had a special weekend in londom and the whole weekend is something we all will never forget. It was a real stepping stone for me as well, as it put the last year full of treatment into perspective and i feel as though i have stepped into the future
