Hi Jess,

My mum has terminal cancer and so I have the right to understand the challenge with this! 

> Expierience days always go well, if you email the company directly and also explain you room buying for someone who has a bucket perform they will certainly normally enable that human to cancel critical minute/ rebook if they aren’t filling the best that day! 

>If castle a lady points like comprise or beauty products (providing it doesn’t irritate their skin/nails) really help confidence. For example, nail polishes for people who offered to stay gels/acrylics or really nice head scarfs for civilization who have lost their hair.

> Donating come a charity of their choice- plenty of terminal cancer patients have been on clinical trials that have given them a little an ext time and so they tend to ask people to donate money to that trial that assisted them! 


I hope this helps!

My grandmother to be diagnosed v terminal cancer in 2016, unfortunately she didn"t have actually much time and also as her date of birth was draw close I wanted to carry out something different, something i knew she would certainly love. Ns made her a personalised photograph album, bought a blank book and handcrafted the former cover then gained individual pics of family and friends and got them all to leaving her a wee personal message then filled up the blank pages with photos that supposed a lot to both her and also us. She loved it so lot she cried. She i m so sad passed away not too long after this yet the picture album is still in the family and it"s a nice point to look at every as soon as in a while. Expect this was useful.

Not sure if this will help...but I once read a diary extract indigenous a cancer patient end Christmas. She to be a lady and had progressed illness. I can’t remember wherein I observed it and I’m probably gaining some the the finer details wrong!...but the jist the it was she said something like, “even though ns terminally ill i still want the diamond earrings mine husband promised me this Christmas”. I think she was indicating the she want to be treated as she would have actually been without disease at Christmas time xx same dos!
