Letter To The Editor: Relay For Life Week

on August 19, 2016 - 2:25pm

I am a breast cancer survivor. Many people have told me, “I just don’t know what to say.” So, let me try to offer some suggestions, in honor of Relay for Life Week – on what to say to your friend who has cancer. 

The “rule” is  listening is the language of love. Cancer is a tough diagnosis, so your friend needs some compassion. So ask, how is it going – you can do this in person, you can do this thru an email, you can do this in a card. But, only ask, if you are willing to listen.
