The person dying is never the only person who is affected by illness and death: family, loved ones, and friends are, too. Entire communities can mourn a death. Many others will feel your loss as their own. During your illness, family and loved ones will have to make decisions and support one another. And they will have to make practical arrangements to help you. It would help if everyone recognized that families and close friends are really "going through it" with a seriously ill or dying loved one. Here you will find some stories and advice about family togetherness and caregiving.
