@rowlandsb, I have some options for your daughter. She is welcome to join Mayo Clinic Connect and follow the NETs group to connect with others with a similar condition. But as we know connected with other people living with cancer at her stage of life is really important too. We also have a group for Young Adults here:

- Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) Cancer https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/adolescent-young-adult-aya-cancer/

Mayo Clinic social workers also host a monthly Zoom support group for young adults with cancer the first Thursday every month from 6- 8 p.m. Arizona time. She is welcome whether she is a Mayo patient or not. The next meeting is today at 6pm PT (9pm ET, 8pm CT). See more details here:
- YA, Me Too: Young Adult Cancer Support Group Meeting https://connect.mayoclinic.org/event/ya-me-too-young-adult-support-group-meeting-116/

I think those are good places to start.

And mom? How are YOU doing?

Thank you for taking the time to respond, it is much appreciated. I will get her to join the young adult group. It might be difficult for her to join the online support group given the time difference as we are 8 hours ahead (we live in the UK).

I'm doing okay thank you; I'm taking some comfort from the fact the cancer is slow growing and should have a better idea of prognosis sometime in the next month. The national health system in the UK is buckling under the volume of referrals.
