Have you been told that your brother or sister is very sick or dying? This is a hard time for you.

You are normal

Everyone has different feelings and thoughts and questions when someone they love is very sick or dying. Some kids might have feelings and thoughts and questions like yours, others may have different thoughts and feelings. Most of these feelings and questions are new and maybe even scary. Talk to an adult you trust if you have questions about your feelings and thoughts.

It will get better

Even though it may not feel like it right now, things will get better. Most people feel better after some time, but it takes a different amount of time for everyone.
