Hello Alexalt,

I'm sorry to hear about your situation, it sounds like you have a lot on your plate at the moment so I wanted to stop by to welcome you to our forum and to leave a few links which may come in handy.

On the Macmillan website, you can find this page which addresses working while looking after someone with cancer. Also, you might want to ring their financial helpline which is detailed here: your rights at work as a carer. I hope this information can be of some help.

Wishing you and your nanna all the best,

Renata, Cancer Chat Moderator
