    Hi Muriel,

     

    I’m sorry to hear about your husband’s recent diagnosis. Finding out that a loved one has a terminal illness can be overwhelming and bring with it many different emotions including feeling that you cannot cope. The following page of our website is written from the viewpoint of the person who has been diagnosed but the impact and emotions it talks about can also be experienced by family,

    Some people find that it can help to talk to about how they are feeling. If you would like to talk about things in more detail please call our Free phone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat:
