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.

Pray, be kind to all.

I have struggled with a monumentally devastating depression for almost 4 years, although now I am finally coming out of it and I feel like myself again. I have been getting there for awhile now, but until recently I would regress and have to start all over again. What do I need? Cheerleading! A team hug! A loving word! Encouragement when I fall off the confidence bandwagon. Sisterly support.
Anything you can tell me that will make the chemo and rad. treatments a little easier to deal with.
