Walking Through Suffering With a Loved OneOffering love and support to a loved one going through cancer is one of the best ways to show you care.

But do you feel like just being there isn’t enough? Do you feel a need to do something? Your loved one may be struggling with advanced cancer or with a cancer recurrence. Doctors may be concerned the cancer isn’t responding to treatment. You may have been told that long-term remission isn’t likely. Or your loved one may have decided to discontinue treatment and live out his or her days to the fullest. Whatever the case may be, if you want to help in a tangible, practical way, don’t offer up a generic, “What can I do to help?” Your question could be too broad for the one struggling through cancer to answer.
