You may find it impossible to believe. You might feel like you’re stuck in a nightmare. But the sad truth is that cancer can’t always be cured. It’s not going to be easy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get through this. Canteen is here for you - we can put you in touch with a specialist counsellor, help you try and make sense of what’s happening and you can also talk to other young people dealing with similar stuff through Canteen Connect.
Our useful guide ‘When your parent’s cancer can’t be cured’ will help you teach you how to deal with a parent dying with cancer and provide advice on managing aspects of your daily life, learning how your parents might be feeling, and how to deal with grief.
