Making the most of the time you have

It can be confronting to be told you or a loved one have months or weeks to live. If you’re struggling with the news, you might find it helpful to listen to the “Living with Dying” episode of The Thing About Advanced Cancer podcast. In this episode, Julie McCrossin talks with palliative care specialist Dr Megan Best about ways that people face the end of life, including decisions about stopping treatment, the role of spirituality, and identifying how they want to spend their remaining time. You will also hear insights from people affected by advanced cancer.


Listen to the episode on the Cancer Council NSW website or on your phone or tablet through your favourite podcast app. If you’re new to the world of podcasts and not sure how to download or listen to them on your smartphone or tablet, see our step-by-step guide.
