    hello @SonyaKBlackburn

    Welcome to the community :) 

    Do you have any charities in your area that would be able to advise? I'm not sure who pointed you in our direction, but as mentioned above we are mainly a UK based forum of people. It's great to have you here though, you're more than welcome :)

    Hi @SonyaKBlackburn :) Welcome to the community.

    Could you perhaps speak to a doctor about your situation to see if they know of any local groups that could help?

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our CP category and renamed it slightly so that other members will be able to find it more easily.

    Hi @SonyaKBlackburn
    Great to meet you and you ask a very good question. There certainly wasn't any support groups when I had cancer. I was pretty much left to get on with it despite the added challenges of CP. Have you contacted and cancer support groups in Oklahoma?
