When someone you love receives a terminal diagnosis, the whole family is suddenly faced with a prolonged crisis. While medical advances have given us the gift of extending life, meaning that a loved one could survive months or even years before dying, it has also changed the way we grieve. Published in collaboration with Harvard Health Publications, Saying Goodbye guides you through this complex journey, offering hope and healing for those who may be "living with death" for an extended period of time.
