    Hello my name is Helen I am 41 years old, for the last 2 years my mum has tried so hard to beat this cruel disease. But unfortunately the Cancer is bigger than my mum can fight now, we are receiving Pallative care at home.


    Mum likes to sleep a lot, and complains of a dry mouth all the time, I feel like the time is getting near to say good bye to my mum, but finding it really hard.

    Hi Helen, 

    I’m really sorry to hear about your mother’s illness. Supporting a loved one through a terminal illness brings with it such intense and changeable emotions and this can be especially so when they are reaching the end of their life. Looking after someone who’s dying means you’re very close to everything they experience. This can be understandably distressing; some people find it less difficult to cope if they understand more about the changes that occur as end of life comes near - www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/being-there/end-of-life-preparation/changes. Being able to talk about how you are feeling is important at this time. We are here for you in the Marie Curie community and you can also talk to us on the Marie Curie support line, 0800 090 2309.
