It is hard to know what to expect when someone you love is dying of cancer. I know that was my experience when my mom died of cancer a few years ago. There is no What to Expect when you are Expecting books to give you an education or a perspective. Yet just like we need information for when loved ones are at the start of their lives, we need information for when loved ones are at the end of their lives, too.
Here are three essays that I believe can help you with this.
- My Mother Is Not a Bird, by Julienne Grey
- A Photographer Processes Her Parents’ Cancer by Documenting It in These Raw and Touching Images by David Rosenberg
- My Own Life – by Oliver Sacks
When someone you love is dying of cancer, your life becomes much more difficult. Knowledge can help with that difficulty.
