Bereavement Support

Don't give up now

If you have lost someone to pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) or appendix cancer, then it can be difficult to find someone who understands what you’ve been through or are going through. You want to communicate with others that understand the disease but you don’t feel that the main group is right for you. Our group provides a space to share happy memories, photos, stories, and tributes to your lost one. This can be an important part of the grieving process and healing journey. Our group provides a brave space to openly and honestly share deep emotions, thoughts, fears, anxieties, sadness, anger, regret, and more.

Our group is a private, secure place for peer to peer support to share grief and coping mechanisms and to support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between.

Only fellow members can see you’re in the group and read your posts. And best of all, we all understand what you’re going through. You can expect a warm welcome from others and have the opportunity to talk about yourself and your experiences — if you want to. Sharing can be profoundly comforting; you’re not expected to talk about anything and it can take a few visits before feeling comfortable enough to talk about personal matters.

So if you’re the surviving this disease and would like some mutual support, please join our group.
