  • Send flowers or a card letting her know that you are thinking of her. You can also drop of a food dish to her just to show her that you are close by if she needs a friend. Pray for her.

  • I agree with onespecialmom. There's only so many things a person can say or do in situations like that. I'm sorry she has to go through that :-(

  • Just Be There For Her. There Really Isn't Anything You Can Say.
