Have you ever encountered this? Friends with whom you are able to chit-chat, interact, joke and just plain have a relaxed conversation discover you have cancer. Have you noticed how some shut down and don’t know what to say? They become a bit distant and silent?
How do you handle it? Suggestion: Put your friend at ease. Talk about your cancer.
Change the subject? I don’t think so.
Let your friends know it’s OK to talk about your cancer. Ask for their support and prayers. Put them at ease. One might even consider joking about it.
