This book is a guide for individuals who need to support patients with advanced cancer. It discusses treatment options such as palliative care, clinical trials, hospice care and home care, as well as symptom control. It also addresses emotional concerns including feelings, communicating with friends and family, and living life to its fullest and with meaning.

Lists of federal and nonprofit organizations are provided that may be helpful in giving information and services to cancer patients. This book also explores many of the questions and crossroads that face caregivers when their loved one has been told that he or she has advanced cancer that is no longer responding to treatment.
