Loving Your Friend through Cancer Loving Your Friend through Cancer

Moving beyond

by Henley, Marissa

“It’s cancer.” When you hear the two words you dread most from someone you care about, you know at once that your friend’s life has been turned upside down. Whether she’s a good friend, a best friend, or just an acquaintance, you want to be supportive. But how can you understand what she’s going through enough to know what she needs? What can you say besides “If you need anything—anything at all . . .”? A good question! A cancer survivor herself, the author lets you in on what having cancer feels like and what your friend truly needs. She prepares you to support your friend with both knowledge and compassion. And she offers specific action steps and practical support resources to help you show love in the day-to-day details. Cancer is a life-altering challenge—but this book will equip and empower you to walk alongside your friend with love and support.
