Cure it with Movies/Books: Terminal illness/Cancer

I bet most of you are super excited about the brand new trailer of "Me before You", based on the same name novel by Jojo Moyes. For those who have no clue of what I'm talking about, the story is about Louisa Clark and  Will Traynor, two people who couldn't be more different but, due to Will's conditions (he's tetraplegic) get to know each other. Here's the trailer: 
Now...I read and loved the book, so I wanted to keep "torturing" and crying myself out by reading & watching more books/movies about this topic (terminally illness). There's no right or wrong way to deal with it: someone accepts it and someone doesn't, but the list here shows how illness afflicts not only the sick ones, but everyone around them.
