A good support system (loved ones, family and friends) is 50% of the cure for any illness, not only cancer. I'm very happy and proud to have the "golden sisters" as part of my circle of dear, close friends -- I love you both so much! They took care of me almost as if I were a child. Thank you again and again and again for being there for me always. When a friend has cancer or other serious illness, we all get worried and want to help. Many people feel helpless and unsure of how to help a friend in need, to a point where they become completely frozen or disappear from the person's life. Here is an article I want to share with you, about how to support a friend who has cancer. Essentially, it offers ideas of what to say (and also what NOT to say); things you can do and how to pay proper attention.
