Terminal illness

A terminal illness or end-stage disease is a condition that cannot be cured. This is expected to cause a patient's death, and it's sometimes called a life-limiting illness. Progressive diseases like cancer or advanced heart disease are the most common types of terminal illness, and these require patients to make important decisions about their end-of-life plans, advanced care, and legacy. Whether you're dealing with a diagnosis or helping a loved one, you're not alone.
