Let’s say your friend is diagnosed with cancer, or your neighbor or your kids’ friend’s parent — what do you do and how?

It is important to be there for your friend, if you can. Please do not worry about saying something stupid or being “too much” to your friend. All anyone with cancer wants is someone to speak to them and NOT always ask about “so are you cured?” or “so are you going to die?” — there is a middle ground.

The middle ground includes our kids — just because we have cancer does not mean we no longer have children in our lives who love us and look to us with fear and worry that one day, when they wake up, we will be “gone.”

This explains how you can help those of us with cancer who are also parents… Supermom out!
