Find out how we produce our information|
This section is for you if you have cancer and it’s likely that you may die within the next few months. You may also find it helpful if you have a relative or close friend who is terminally ill with cancer.
It discusses what is likely to happen, the emotional impact of knowing you may die sooner than you hoped, and the information and support people need most in this situation.
You may find reading about these issues for the first time difficult and distressing. So you may want to wait to read this information when you are somewhere private and know that you will not be disturbed.
