Ruth believed that all parents receiving a terminal diagnosis, should have access to support and guidance to prepare for the future. We hope that our Family Support Service and resources will help families prepare for grief, death & dying. We are here to support parents on how to start the difficult conversation with their children about their terminal diagnosis. By encouraging families to maintain an open and honest dialogue, children will be able to make the most of the time left with the dying parent, without internalising questions, worries or fears.
We are here for families facing grief.
