Cancer treatment is not only physically exhausting it is emotionally exhausting too. Give love and support to a cancer patient with no strings attached knowing your emails, messages, phone calls and gifts are appreciated. No matter how bad the patient feels, it’s always nice to know they are being thought of. The patient may reply and be up for to chat. If not always know they’ve read your messages and they know they’re not forgotten. Receiving a simple”thinking of you” is great followed by “no need to reply” relieves any unintended stress.
The worst thing you can do is write ” I will leave it up to you to respond now as I have tried contacting you with no response.” Your friend may not have the energy, be too ill or emotionally drained to respond to every voice message or email. That message can be soul destroying.
