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.
Be there to listen. Treat you the same as before the cancer diagnosis.
Share your experiences to help others
Just to help me through this scary I can fight the beast!
Listen. Ask.
Do things to help keep my mind off of my illness, keep me occupied with good things.
There's nothing anybody can do, though I've had many kind offers. Like birth and death, you gotta do it by yourself.
Send me good vibes, positive thoughts~ share my Gofundme page and create awareness
Pray and encourage me when I'm down.
Educate yourself about signs & symptoms of CRC & please know it's just NOT for "50 & above".
Listen! Listen! Listen!
Be patient
Encourage, offer insight to the things I can control: attitude, Alternative meds, Prayer....
Don't look at me all teary eyed!
Pray pray pray
Fight. Talk to your loved one and friends
pray, love on my family, pray
Be Cool as it can happen to them also
realize that cheerleading is needed as an ongoing help - in small doses but need it
pray and give me words of encouragement particularly about a stem cell transplant
Treat me the same!
Let me VENT! I don't want you to fix it and I don't want to hear about your sisters' ex boyfriends mother's half sister who once had cancer. I just dont.
