I'm sorry to read of your recent diganosis. Whilst you are waiting for the other users to reply you might find it helpful to talk things through with a member of staff on the helpline. Here you can share your thoughts and concerns with someone who will offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practial information. The number to call is 0808 800 6000 and lines are open weekdays 9 to 5pm and Saturday
10 to 2pm.
Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator
