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 be there and listen when I need support
Information!
Remember that they love me & call once in awhile.
I need information how to deal with damaged saliva glands, what foods I can eat, I have dry mouth its damaging my teeth
Pray, pray, pray.
Keep cards and texts coming.
Continue what they are already doing. Knowing they are connected to Angela & I means so much.
Visit my gofund me page, Lots of Prayers, and educate yourself not only about Thyroid Cancer but all cancers and donate to theses charities when possible to help discover a cure.
Listen more, talk less
Be strong *for* me when i cant be
Support me with prayer, positivity when mine is sometimes non-existent, and FaceTime visits when I feel up to it.
Be kind to each other it could be your turn next
Spread the Cancer Gospel
Dont tell me horror stories
Encourage me!
Talk to me.
Stop sending me quack cure info
Support my mom's go fund me page and always tell their loved ones they love them
Stop fussing and let me find out about options
See me healthy,
Express emotional support
Be present.
Empathise, share experiences and practical tips. Share new reliable research knowledge
I appreciate any support I can get. I’m trying so hard to fight with grace and fiercely!
