I am so sorry to read that your Son has a terminal brain tumour. Learning that anybody you love has a terminal illness can be overwhelming. Our information on feelings and emotions can apply to you as a parent as much as they would to an adult dealing with their own illnesses: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/terminal-illness/emotions.
Other charities that deal specifically with children include Clic Sargent and The Brain Tumour Charity which may be able to provide you with more specific support and links to other families for peer support.
If you would like to talk about things in more detail please call our Free phone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help
