  • Tell her, if you can, that you're there if she needs any help, etc, during treatment. She's going to be sick off and on and need someone to do little things for her. Her family will need help to. Make yourself available to her, she's not going to ask you, so offer, maybe ask her if you can bring supper over once a week or something. Or watch her kids, anything to help out.

  • I have a friend struggling with cancer as well. Just tell her that if she needs anything ( meals, errands, child care help,or a shoulder to cry on) you'll be there for her.

  • Attach yourself to her hip. She just needs support and someone she can say anything to. You don't have to say anything, she'll get the message because you will just be there. I said a prayer for you today.

  • As one who's there and in a sad case. Where I feel awful for all that I'm going through. Please try to be strong for her! Offer her all kinds of things! I know how I can't cook, clean or do things I need to! We're jobless here and I can't even afford necessities. My heart aches for her! It aches for you and her family. There's so much to go through. A long process. Loss of this and that. Deep crying jags and everything. Even some nice cards. Some treats! For me many foods & liquids I like all taste awful, burn and all. Many foods I love I can't tolerate! Even smells.. Also your skin may dry out. Hair loss. The Stress. Etc.. Some nice bath gels to help.. Any thing pampering.. A call. A message on the 'machine. I know there's times I can't take a call. Or leave my Bed Etc.. Anything you can do for her! Will help!! Like me I'd Love a floor mopping!! A Task, help or a duty. But I'd never ask or be a burden. I wish she gets Well

  • Let her know she is loved, and you are supporting her in any way she needs. Now is the time for her to lean on you if that is what she needs. I'm praying for her and for you,Hon.
