    Welcome to the community @tink50 :) Thanks for joining, and for sharing a little bit about you and your husband's situation.

    I'm really sorry to hear of your husband's cancer diagnosis. I'm sure that must be difficult and overwhelming for you both.

    Is there anything in particular that you're looking for help and information on?

    Hi @tink50 - & welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read about your husband having cancer; it must be difficult for you both to cope with. As far as info goes, I wonder if you have also been in touch with Macmillan Cancer Support: https://www.macmillan.org.uk/
    Do you find your GP supportive for the help you need?
    I'm pleased to see you've had your query about PIP answered, but please do use this forum to talk any time too.
