If you have a spiritual belief you might find that this becomes more important to you. You may be thinking about what happens to you after you die. At this time, many people find the support of their religious community comforting. You can contact a local minister or religious leader for spiritual support. It does not matter if you have not previously had any involvement with your local place of worship, they will usually be happy to help and can provide spiritual guidance and support. Hospital chaplains are also a great resource if you are an inpatient. Some women who face incurable cancer find they may experience a loss of faith, if you are experiencing this do seek some support to discuss how you are feeling.

Spiritual beliefs do not have to be connected to religion, if this is your situation you may find talking to friends or family who share your belief system a useful source of support. Your health care team will also be able to help to signpost you to the relevant person to suit your preferences and wishes.
