Is there a group here for parents of adult children w cancer?

I have a 34 year old son and I am looking for a support group.

Thanks

im 28 and was diagnosed last year- my parents didnt find anything specific in the washington dc/ mid-atlantic area, but they went to a lot of the spouse support groups and they seemed to help since adult parents of adult cancer patients take on the primary caregiver/ almost spouselike role. Im healthy and out of treatment now, my parents and i would be willing to help you and your son in any way we can. Stay strong- you both can get through this. Our prayers are with you both.

Have you tried the survivors chat room? It is both for survivors and caregivers and there are some parents there with adult children undergoing trewatment. You could also ask oncologist because they usually have social workers and they would know of any local support groups.
All the best,
