Funerals and memorial services allow relatives and friends to get together to remember the person who has died. They’re a way of acknowledging their death. They can be a celebration of the person’s life as well as a chance to say goodbye to them.
Our booklets and audio CDs talk about what might happen when someone is coming to the end of their life. Knowing what to expect could help you focus on what’s important to you.
Everyone copes with grief differently. If someone close to you dies from cancer, we are here for you. Read about different emotions, or talk to us.
Creating a tribute page is a unique and meaningful way of celebrating a loved one's life, while also helping to make sure we can be there for more people affected by cancer.
