If your loved one was recently diagnosed with cancer, you are in the right place, here’s what you can do to be more helpful during these hard times.

Start Listening

This can be a challenge when your loved one faces a life-threatening diagnosis, but try not to judge them and don’t “cheerlead” their way through the tough moments in their lives because it might make things harder for both parties involved! Just being there as they share these feelings with you will probably serve more of a purpose than anything else could ever hope to accomplish.

Families are often tested during times like these – so instead of focusing on how awesomely strong someone seems now or worrying excessively over potential outcomes genetics may choose at some point – what’s important here? Understanding where everyone stands and just being there for your loved ones.

Ask The Professionals For Advice

You want to help but sometimes that makes things even worse. Often friends and loved ones take on the task of researching a diagnosis or treatment options. This can be very helpful as they often have access to information that is otherwise hard for you – but it’s important not just give advice all willy-nilly! Instead, let your partner decide what they want from this research effort; if anything at all.

Learn More About Cancer

With all of the information available about cancer, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But don’t fret! Many reputable organizations provide helpful resources and user-friendly websites with detailed explanations on treatments as well as side effects or other concerns related to cancer.

I’ve found it useful when researching my own diagnosis, I was visiting various healthcare providers’ sites – even those outside our state completely because they offered different perspectives which helped me become more educated after hearing several opinions.

Support Their Decision

Let your loved ones know they have the support of everyone around them. It’s important that you allow them to make decisions for themselves, even if it means disagreeing with some choices or not being happy about every outcome in life – we all deal with different levels of adversity during our journey!

Become The Caregiver

The caregiver is a very important person in the life of someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. They take on necessary tasks such as driving them to treatment, arranging medical appointments, and providing needed care or emotional support while also taking over many roles formerly handled by that individual’s diagnosis; it can be tough but if done right this could help give you more time for yourself!


Living with cancer is difficult enough, but staying connected to the people who love you helps make it easier. Cancer treatment often takes a long time and there’s no telling how your diagnosis will affect them in future stages of their life including whether they’ll call anymore once everything settles down after that first panic attack or chemotherapy session has finished taking its toll on both mind and body! So check up on those loved ones every now again – even if just for a chat over coffee.

No Special Treatment

When someone you love is going through cancer, it’s hard not to want to do anything for them. But being helpful can also take away their sense of independence and dignity – which are important during this process! So instead try giving your friend or family member some space by letting them continue with pre-cancer tasks like cooking dinner every night before they go out briefly afterwards while still offering support throughout the day if needed

Be There For Them

The best way to support your loved one after they have finished treatment is by being receptive and understanding. This may be the first time that you really get a sense of how much everything has impacted them, so it’s important not only during this process but also for future conversations where topics like these come up again- even if there isn’t anything else going on at present! Be kind in regards because what we go through does matter – for mental health and emotional support.
