Our expert says:
Make sure that he receives proper and competent palliative care, preferably from the nearest hospice, though the Cancer Association can also sometimes help. Pain could be controlled. The hospice should also have a social worker and other grief counsellors who can help work with you and the family. Cant the stepmother be persuaded that hospice will not have any intention of pushing her aside, but by assessing him and ensurin that they can work with her to relieve his pain, they could ensure that his last days with her and with his children, could be as peaceful and comforting as possible. Surely she doesn't want him to be in unrelieved pain ?
There are no simple answers, believe me, to questions about coping and saying goodbye --- that's where the social worker / counsellors can help
