Has anyone else lost close friends or family members who you thought would be there during treatment? I saw this and realized cancer ghosting was a lot more common than I thought 😪Cancer Ghosting: The Traumatic Side Effect No One Warns You About

Re: Cancer Ghosting

For sure.  I don't necessarily blame people, it's just not a tool many have in their toolkit (dealing with mortality, knowing what to say).  Most people don't know you just have to be there, and take the guidance of the person in strife.
