Facing breast cancer often brings feelings of being different from everyone else. Jen and I knew that this was difficult for our loved ones too, but we needed their support and Love. You don't have to know the right thing to say...I don't know if there is a "right" thing. What I do know is how much it helped Jen and me when we received a text message saying, "I Love you," or when someone sent dinner after a day of chemotherapy, or when a someone came to visit us.
Just don't stay away because you are scared or don't know what to say.
