I have been cancer free for about a year now and it scares me when I see it return for others.
Please do not feel selfish for wanting your friend to live. It is only normal. You are there for her, you love her and she knows this. I know you feel
as though nothing that you say or do is enough, but believe me, sometimes just being there with her even in silence is enough. Just knowing someone
is there with their love and compassion speaks volumes.
It's ok if you fall apart in front of her, you can only be so strong for so long. I am sure your friend will understand and cry with you. This too is
normal. You both will surely go through a roller coaster of emotions.
Watch some good movies together as a nice diversion. Order out for pizza or something and make special days together. Get her a good book so she can
escape into another place and time for a while.
Another poster didn't want to say this, but I will...I truly believe that your friend will indeed go to a better place than this.
Keep us posted on how things are going. You have a wonderful, loving and compassionate ATS family who genuinely cares.
I will pray for you both, that you will both have the strength and courage to face this difficult time. HUGS!!!!!!!
