My response: You might consider taking with you several copies of my article, Helping Another in Grief, to give to the staff members. You can also refer them to my Helping Someone Who's Grieving webpage, at http://www.griefhealing.com/helping-the-grieving.htm.
Just so you know, there are many sites on the Internet devoted to cancer support, some better than others, of course. I think the best place to find what you need is on my Care Giving webpage, at www.griefhealing.com/care-giving-links.htm. There you will find dozens of links to sites I've personally reviewed that are devoted to supporting families struggling with a terminal diagnosis. You can preview some of the sites yourself, and /or you can refer people to them, either by sending them directly to the Care Giving page on my site, or by printing out a list of sites you've reviewed and selected that you would recommend.
Here is just a sampling I've pulled for you, to give you (and others who may be reading this) an idea of what is "out there":
