Dear Monikita

I am very sorry to read that you have been diagnosed with lung cancer. This is difficult enough without having the extra worry of minding your 2 children on your own. Do you think you could phone our support line and speak to a cancer nurse to discuss this at 1800 200 700. We are here Mon- Fri 9-5pm. Meanwhile we would suggest you arrange to speak to the medical social worker attached to your oncology team for their support and advice also. In a general sense for emotional support you might find the following helpful see here and for financial and other support see here

I do hope we will hear from you soon

Kind regards

Cancer Nurse
