Terminal Illness

Terminal Illness

In this article, an extract from Peter Hicks' 'What Could I say?', unpacks how to support someone who has received a terminal diagnosis, and their families.


It provides a helpful overview of how people often react to the diagnosis; some Bible passages you can go to; what you could say to the person who is terminally ill; and what you might say to the friends and family of the ill person.
