In brief: Ask for a referral
You may ask your doctor for a referral to a palliative care specialist, or look up here: http://www.

In brief: It helps to have
Enlightened physicians, caring nurses, and families that do not like to see their loved one suffer. It is a willingness to listen to benefits and liabilities of what more treatment offers versus what focus on symptom relief provides.
