How Do I Help Someone With Cancer?

I can remember a lot of people asking me "what can I do to help?". I never knew what to tell them. I was almost too overwhelmed to know what I needed. I have asked this question of other survivors in order to give people some ideas on what they can do to help.
Just being there, makes it better!
Pray! Hugs, patience, let me cry if I have to but not for too long.
Visit me and send goodies!
They remind me that there are people out there who "get it"
I love to hear from my support system
Advise, listen, encourage, show me the way forward to help support my fiancee
