    Hello Andreas,


    I am sorry to read about your experiences with your mum whom you love so much. Caring for a loved one can be both rewarding and challenging, there is further information here www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/being-there that you may find useful.


    Understandably you want guidance about her specific condition and medication; I am pleased to read your mum has the support of a Macmillan Nurse. As well as talking to her, you may also wish to speak www.cancerresearchuk.org that has nurses on their support line


    If you would like to talk about how you are feeling in more detail please call our Free phone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat:



    Best Wishes
