Help me finding Hello

There are various places you can go to get these.

Your local hospital may also be able to help you too.

Hope the above helps.



We are here for you and your mum Hi,

Sorry to hear about your mum my prayers and thoughts are with you both and anyone else who is going through a tough time at the moment including myself. You will get lots of support from this site as we have all been through the same things, it just affects different people in different ways.

Take care, thinking of you both


Hi lucky

I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. I can hear the frustration in your voice that you are so far away from her and can’t put your arms around her and tell her everything is going to be ok.

I am 43 and I thought I was too young for this disease too. It is a huge shock but it does get better with time, I promise.

It sounds like you need someone to talk to. If I were you I would contact one of the nurses on the Breast Cancer Care helpline. They may be able to tell where in your area you can get help and advice as a family member of someone who has cancer. I live in Glasgow and we have a Maggie’s Centre which is for ANYONE affected by cancer, including, family and friends of sufferers. You can just drop in for a cup of tea and a chat but they also give useful advice on everything from finances to dealing with stress.

Another idea may be a centre for ethnic minority women if you have one in your area. (Your local CAB,social work department or library may have details.) I’m sure they will have experience of dealing with people such as yourself whose loved ones are coping with a serious illness in another country.

You clearly have a great deal of love for you mum. Don’t underestimate how important that is even if you cannot be with her physically.

(BTW,I know that Marks and Spencers sells mastectomy bras - the type you have described.)

I wish your mum all the best. Keep posting here - it is a great source of support.
