Sometimes silent companionship is all a cancer patient needs.
Often patients don’t have much energy, and just may want your silent companionship. Your presence alone can be comforting. Bring along a quiet task (a book, your electronic device or knitting) so that you can sit with your friend without them feeling like they need to entertain you if they’re tired.
