Cancer you're a dick!
A place for me to share my husband Al's journey with Myeloma (incurable blood cancer)
I hope by sharing our stories, little victories, resources & my own experiences of going from wife to carer, I might be able to help others feel less alone, scared & overwhelmed.
The loneliest journey any one will ever take is caring for a sick loved one.
I really hope to share some wee gems that helped me feel less alone.
Being a carer is bloody hard yakka!
In the overwhelming world of diagnosis you go from often discovering you have a cancer that you didn't know existed until you become unwell!
Here are some resources we found really helpful in what felt like a minefield of cancer babble.
Useful info & resources
Information overload is flipping exausting
A list of things we have discovered along the way that family & friends should or shouldn't say & do. Sounds harsh but unless you have been through cancer its hard to know what to say when a loved one or friend is battling cancer. Hopefully this will help with that feeling on oh shit what do I say or how can I help?
