Oncology parental support Facebook groups – QLD

  • computer

In Queensland at Lady Cilento Childrens Hospital there are two parent support Facebook groups. The first one is for all parents and called ‘The Real Housewives of 11B’. The second is for fathers or similar male significant family members of an oncology child and called ‘LCCH Oncology dads’.

Both are run by parents, have set guidelines and all requests to join must respond to a set group of questions. Neither allow staff, support staff or charity staff to join and neither are affiliated with Queensland Health. They are both simply support groups, run by the parents for the parents. The Real Housewives group has been operational for nearly 3 years.
