My Stepson Has Cancer

We just found out about 2 months ago that my stepson has cancer. It's been really hard on us seeing that he's only 13. I've known him since he was born but his father and I just recently married over a year ago. I'm having a hard time in knowing when to step in when it comes to his well being and the health of my son. I feel like I need to be careful not to step on anyones toes. But I live that boy with everything I have. I find that my husband and u fight a lot more now. I understand that he is stressed to no end, but I found myself being shoved aside because I'm not his mother by logically. It breaks my heart because I only have his most best well being at heart. If anyone has gone through this please help. I don't know what to do.

hi, going through the same thing, my advise is concentrate on the things you can do for your partner and stepson. Be there to keep your partner strong so he can be strong for your stepson. Its a long road and people will come up to you and ask how your stepson is and how your partner is, very few will actually ask you how you are or how you are coping. If you have a good friend then try to take a time out for a coffee and a chat. One day at a time.
