I am in a panic! My sister recently came down with cancer and was a single mum. Now my niece is staying with me! It seems impossible she has cancer, she never seemed like she'd ever have something wrong with her. She was positive even when she got divorced. Now she's sad, I know it, and even though she tries to cover up, she's worrying too. How do I care for my niece?? She's 13 and very upset.

So sorry to hear about your Sister. Is she staying with you too?

How's your DN doing and how are you OP thanks

How very difficult for you all.
I would get some advice from your Macmillan nurse if your sister has one - they gave me some useful books when my Mum was ill to help me talk about her illness with my daughter.

Hi, thank you. She's at hospital and I'm doing okay. I miss her a lot but she's very stable and doing okay!
