Have you ever wondered what you can do to help a friend diagnosed with Cancer?
Jenny Bradley can offer you some insight. Jenny is a Co-learner and advocate for holistic cancer care. She is also a cancer “Thriver.”
Jenny has been living with Cancer for more than 2.5 years and has documented her journey on her Instagram account @shrinkthemutant, and website shrinkthemutant.com. A question often posed by her followers is, “how do I help my friend who has cancer?” To help answer this question, Jenny created several resources that equip and empower others to confidently support friends who have Cancer or other chronic diseases.
Here are some of her words of wisdom:
Whether you live in proximity or not to your pal, you can be a blessing. You don’t have to do something big; LITTLE things can have a BIG IMPACT.
- The key is to BE SPECIFIC and make a SUGGESTION of a tangible TASK you can commit to completing.
- Offer to do the task on a SPECIFIC DAY(s)
- Suggest a SPECIFIC time
- ASK if that idea works for your friend
This is just a small sample of what she is sharing in a guide she created for people helping friends during a chronic disease like Cancer. Her guide is designed to take the guesswork out of helping friends during a potentially difficult time by providing specific resources and action steps.
No more worrying if you are saying the wrong thing or wondering if what you are doing is beneficial.
