Any suggestions for how to be with a close friend who just got cancer news?
It’s malignant, but we are still waiting for tests next week. I live a few hours away, and am visiting him now overnight.
We are close, and can talk about anything. Still, it feels awkward for me, and I’d be curious to hear suggestions, particularly from those who have been through it on either side. What worked?
