Beginning the most difficult conversation of all

I'm an advocate for families discussing the tough issues when they arise, but this article is about conversations that even I would find distressing and difficult.

I'm including it here in my blog though because it's important for all of us to know that hearing this from a relative is possible when they are suffering, and it's even more important to be prepared to handle it properly. I found this article from the New York Times had solid, practical advice on what we can do for loved ones in this situation. Click here to read the article.
