"Study recommends greater attention to spiritual needs of people with advanced cancer" 

From EurekAlert  
"People with advanced cancer felt they received little or no spiritual support from religious communities and the medical system, according to a new survey. However, those who did receive such support reported a better quality of life. . . . The findings also indicated that greater spiritual support from religious organizations and medical service providers was strongly linked to better quality of life for patients, even after other factors were taken into account." 

Another in the continuing series on spirituality and life outcomes. Please see the note there on proper interpretation of this kind of information.
