i initially came on this website for another issue, but got news today that a sister has lung cancer...our family is so estranged, what info I got today is that she may not make it out of hospital...I don't mean to sound stupid..by asking this, but I know that if I rely on other family members to give me information, it will get exaggerated, under discussed or may not get discussed. What will my sister need at this point? if it is terminal? is there a natural passing without pain? or is this one of the worst ways to leave our world? she was a smoker since she was about 13 or so and is now 58...right now, I feel helpless as I have no phone number or even know the hospital she is in...not to mention just having had leg surgery and cannot drive....I feel very helpless with this, anyone with info...thank you
