How do I support a friend with cancer?

Hello all,

I wanted to share this article with you to see what you think: it asks what’s the best way to support a friend with cancer?

We’re all different in terms of how we cope with a cancer diagnosis, and it’s interesting to read how Sarah, in this article, talks about the ways she wished to be supported:

“People just finding the time to show they cared was probably the single most important thing for me.”

Did friends know what to say or do when you heard you had cancer? Did some shy away from talking to you? What advice would you give to someone wondering how best to support a friend with cancer?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
