I have joined this site to seek advice on this topic. I am one of those people who has distanced themselves from someone who is caring for a loved one with cancer. I feel absolutely terrible for doing so but i have no idea how to support them and to answer their questions and make them feel better when they ask me why this has happened to them. It makes my heart break seeing them each day losing more hope and dealing with problems that i have never dreamed of.
I want to be a strong friend for them to be able to rely on but i just don't know how to be that person.
I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions of books, journals etc that can give me some fundamentals on how i can support this person in need.
Thanks in advance.
