How best can I help my friend with practical matters? What about spiritual support? Many are hesitant to take any action- they need ideas that are helpful in a variety of situations and quickly accessed. How to Help Your Friend with Cancer provides insight into a friend’s cancer experience in each part of the journey, answering questions such as What do caregivers cite as their number one need? and What does a cancer patient fear most when active treatment is over? It contains suggestions for expressing concern and helping in practical ways throughout a friend’s cancer experience, from diagnosis, through treatment, and after active treatment.
