A tip to help

Tip:  If you know someone that is going through cancer treatments, don't be afraid to call occasionally.  They may not feel up to talking.  That's okay.  Try again another time. It was my experience, that I always felt like talking the week before I had to have chemo because by then I was feeling stronger.  If/when you do talk to them, if they want to talk about what's going on with them -  listen. Also, tell them what's going on with your life, the good and the bad.  They will be interested and would like to talk about other things besides themselves.
