There are many people who are grieving at the thought of their loved ones dying from a terminal disease. These people need to have some kind of support so that they are able to overcome their grief and instead are able to help their loved one to be able to cope with the disease. The common diseases that are terminal in nature include those like cancer in the advanced stage, muscular dystrophy. There are also many other diseases that can cause a lot of permanent damage in children. Diseases that can cause damage to the brain of the child can lead to permanent deformities and mental retardation. This too can cause grief in parents and support groups are very important to help the parents to overcome their grief.
Though the parents need a lot of support, the kids who are suffering from the disease will also need a lot of support. This will help them to be able to overcome their disease to an extent, at least mentally. The child who suffers from the disease physically will not be able to overcome very easily because of the pain and the discomfort caused by the disease. In spite of these problems, the child will be able to at least cope with the disease to an extent, when the help of the support groups is obtained.
The role of the support groups in the society is very important. These support groups should be present in every city so that the resources that are used in one of the groups can be shared with the people who are suffering in another city. The government and also the nongovernmental organizations should try to set up various support groups.
