Generally speaking, while we all recognize the realities that someday we will die, very seldom do we talk about, plan or share our thoughts about death. Then, under varying circumstances when a terminal prognosis is given, we are suddenly forced to deal with the inevitable prospect of death within a stated relatively short period of time, whether we are the patient or a loved one.
As is the nature of a terminal prognosis, I have always said, “time is not on our side.” I am hopeful that this resource will provide a point of reference, perspective and insight for all those who find themselves confronted with end-of-life issues involving a terminal prognosis.
As we begin, a great big hug to all as you embrace what I truly believe is one of the greatest challenges in life.
