Our Message to friends & families… How can you help?

If you have a friend or relative with cancer, here’s what you can do to be a true friend:

  • Listen! Let them talk (or not talk) about their feelings.
  • Let them take things at their own pace. Help them review schoolwork with no pressure.
  • Just be there and visit.

Look past the physical changes and fight the urge to stay away. Continue your friendship.


What Do I Do if my child or someone I know, has lost the battle?

Healing in grief is not a passive event; it’s an active process. It calls on your emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual energy. Reach out to a local support group which offers support through education, encouragement, and understanding.
