Dear Maie,
Welcome to our community.

What a lot to have happen in your life in such a short time. The joy and energy of a one year old and the fear that comes with cancer. 

You said you are so afraid and don't know where to turn - that makes sense to me when I think about all you are having to process now. Do you think having more information about your husband's diagnosis and what the next steps are would help? Sometimes at the beginning there are so many tests and it seems to take so much time. 

You may know this already but if you go to Programs and Services you can click on your province (BC I believe) and see a number of resources available for you and your family. 

Do you live close to your sister?
Take care Maie.
