Q. My brother has stage IV metastatic cancer, now in his liver and abdominal wall. Are there any support groups for him?
An advanced cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and isolating. It’s great that you’re seeking out extra support for your brother. It can be so helpful and comforting to connect with others who are going through a similar experience. CancerCare offers an online support group for patients living with metastatic, stage IV cancer. Our online groups are a convenient way to connect patients who are all looking for support and encouragement during a difficult time. The groups are password protected and moderated by an oncology social worker who will provide guidance, support and resources. If he is interested in joining this group, share this link and encourage him to register: www.cancercare.org/support_groups/194-living_with_metastatic_cancer
