My sister has CNS cancer

I am struggling to cope with the news that my sister has CNS cancer. 

  • Hello Ajs77

    I'm very sorry to hear that your sister has recently been diagnosed with CNS cancer. Hearing the news that a loved one has cancer is never easy and it's understandable that you are struggling to process what this may mean for your sister. 

    What has the hospital team said regarding her diagnosis? Hopefully, the team has been supportive and she has lots of people around her that can help as she also navigates this news. 

    We have some information on our website about coping with cancer that you may find helpful. There are some charities, such as Maggie's, that offer support to the friends and family of people with a cancer diagnosis. It's worth checking with your GP surgery what support may be available for you in your local area. You are also very welcome to call our team of nurses to talk with them about how you've been feeling since receiving this news. I know they will be happy to listen and offer any advice and support they can. If you'd like to talk with them they're available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 0808 800 4040. 

    Keep in touch with us here in the Cancer Chat community Ajs77. We will do all we can to support you through this difficult time. 

    Best wishes,
