Finding it hard atm with my partner in hospital with lung cancer...feel so helpless 

  • Hello Jonsie

    I'm so sorry to hear that your partner is currently in hospital with a lung cancer diagnosis. It's obviously a difficult time for you both and it's understandable that you may be experiencing a range of emotions at the moment. 

    We know that for many people, having a loved one with a cancer diagnosis can be devastating and it can leave you feeling helpless. It's important that you reach out for some support. 

    Do you have friends and family that you can talk to about the situation and how you're feeling? Hopefully there is a support network around you that you can lean on. Alternatively, you might find it easier to talk with your GP or to a support worker at an organisation such as Maggie's

    If you'd like to talk with one of our nurses for some support and advice you're most welcome to call them. I know they would be happy to listen. They're available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 0808 800 4040. 

    Keep in touch here on the forum if it helps to have somewhere to put down in writing how you're feeling. We're here to listen Jonsie and will do our best to offer any support we can. 

    Sending you both my best wishes,
