Talking with someone who has cancer “ I ‘m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care.” “ I ‘m sorry to hear that you are going through this.” “How are you doing?” “If you would like to talk about it, I ‘m here.” “Please let me know how I can help.” “ I ‘ll keep you in my thoughts.”
Don’t say , “It’s going to be OK” But do say something. Do make clear that you’ll be there for them. Do be careful about saying , “I’ll pray for you” Do try to create a semblance of normalcy. Do ask how they’re doing — today. Do be a good listener. Don’t get squirmy at the end.

Don’t say “I know how you feel” because you can’t possibly know. Better to ask, “Do you want to talk about how you feel, how having cancer is affecting you?” Don’t offer information about unproven treatments or referrals to doctors with questionable credentials.
Offer encouragement through success stories of long-term cancer survivors. Avoid saying, “They had the same thing as you.” No two cancers are the same. And never tell stories with unhappy endings. If you know someone with the same type of cancer , offer to connect the two of them.
