What To Say & Not To Say To People Who Have Cancer: Positive Health

Our CEO (Dr Shara Cohen)  has written a great article about talking to people with cancer over at Positive Health.

She says

You may be surprised to learn that ignoring a friend with cancer is a common response. Don’t be afraid to talk with your friend. It is better to say, “I don’t know what to say” than to stop calling or visiting because it makes you feel bad or you are nervous about what to say.  The most important thing is to be there and to listen.
