It’s never easy to lose someone you love. Losing a loved one to an aggressive cancer such as mesothelioma can be even more difficult, because a family member or close friend may be taken far too soon, bringing a sense of shock with feelings of grief, sadness and even depression.
Mesothelioma Grief Support’s guide will help you cope with the loss, understand grief and how to support others as well as other information.
Learn about how children deal with grief and loss.
