2. Listen
For real breast cancer support, you must master of the art of listening. Let her talk it out as much as she wants and don’t judge or fall into the trap of thinking that you would handle things differently or better. Also, don’t stress about coming up with the perfect response. She may just need you to listen.

3. Distract Her
You don’t need to hire a three ring circus to take your friend’s mind off of her troubles for a little while. Just a lunch out can do wonders. Or if she prefers staying in, bring lunch and a movie to her, so that she can relax in her own environment with you and some Hollywood candy.
