Online support groups give you regular contact with people who share and understand your experiences. Many sarcoma patients and carers feel isolated and alone. You may never have met or spoken to someone else with sarcoma.

How does it work?
Club HQ is a support group for Hindquarter Amputees (HQAs) resulting from bone cancer. It is an affinity group run by HQAs for HQAs and centres around a Secret Facebook Group and an annual get together. Free to join, members are active in mentoring new HQAs and providing advice. Anyone wishing to join the group - before or after amputation - should contact Simon Henson on firstname.lastname@example.org.
