    I am trying to find a support outlet for my boyfriend who is struggling to cope with my illness. I think it would really help for him to be able to talk with other people who understand his experience. Does anyone know of any online support forums for loved ones/carers or anything local in London, UK? Or is there anyone out there who is a carer who would be willing to talk with him?

    I definitely recommend him having a support group. In the meantime, though, I think he'd find this online booklet called On Being a Support Person helpful and validating. It was written by a man who cared for his wife through cancer and chemo.
