My friend or loved one has cancer… What should I say? What should I do?
When a friend or family member is diagnosed with cancer, those around them are often at a loss about what to say or do to help.
Simms/Mann Center Director, Anne Coscarelli, has accumulated a wealth of information from professionals and patients about the wonderful things that people have said or done – as well as a few horror stories. She has developed a catalogue of responses, behaviors and suggestions to help friends and families think about the ways that they might be helpful, and thoughts about avoiding difficulties.
