Let’s Get Chatty About How to Support a Friend who has Cancer

Our partner, Evy Michalopoulos at Filotimo Cancer Project, and CANSA’s Prof Michael Herbst chatted via Zoom on Wednesday, 17 March at 15h00 about how to support friends or a loved one with cancer.

Although each person with cancer is different, some general suggestions for showing support were discussed:

  • what to say to a friend who has cancer
  • what not to say
  • ways to help someone with cancer
  • how you can help a friend with Stage 4 cancer
  • how to support and help emotionally
