Tips for Supporting a Friend with Breast Cancer:
Your friend needs something to look forward to-a dinner date, a movie, etc.
Ask your friend to do something that they enjoy-plan for the future.
Ask specifically when you can either cook dinner for her, bring in food or buy groceries.
Offer to take care of her children.
Offer to walk with her-especially important in the recovery process.
Offer to drive her to a doctor appointment.
Tell your friend that you will be there for her and you will help her get through this.
Be a good listener.
Follow the mood of your friend. Sometimes she will want to talk about her cancer and sometimes it is better to talk about other things.
