Advanced cancer

Relationships

Partners, family and friends can be a source of help and support when you’re coping with advanced cancer. But it’s common to find it upsetting to talk about your illness with them.

  • Relationships with people close to you

    You might find it difficult to talk about your illness, but having strong relationships can help you cope with advanced cancer.

  • Preparing a child for loss

    It can be very hard telling your children that you’re not going to get better. Being honest with them can help them cope.

  • Making a memory box

    Making a box filled with special things can help your children or other loved ones to remember times that you spent together.
