I'm new to the ACS support pages, but am very grateful for all it has to offer. My father has recently decided to end his chemotherapy treatments and will begin receiving Hospice care. I wanted to know if anyone has suggestions about literature and other material that might help me come to terms with his illness and the fact that he will be overcome by cancer. I'm feeling very helpless and don't think I'm dealing realistically with the subject of death. Is there anything out there to help one deal with the stages of terminal cancer without being completely engulfed in sadness? If anyone out there has any suggestions or advice, I would enormously appreciate their input.
