Talk about it: Let your grandfather and family know your feelings. This will likely help you and probably your grandfather too through this difficult time. Most communities also have groups where family members and caregivers for patients with cancer can meet and support one another.

Be With Him Now: My Father was diagnosed with caner about a year ago. At first, I only wanted to be sad, but I realized I didn't want him to be remembered like that, or for me to remember him like that, so I focused on his treatment options, his life, our relationship, our family and being 'in the now' with him during that time. Cancer has different stages and different treatment options; stay positive!
