This week, we received some devastating news…my Step-Mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. Twenty-five-years ago she underwent a mastectomy for breast cancer. So, it was especially a difficult pill to swallow again.
Starting in two weeks, she will need to complete six months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
As I try to digest this heavy announcement, I asked myself what can we do to help her along her journey. Here’s a couple ideas that came to mind:
- Pray – We’re praying for her healing as well as her strength/endurance during a long, difficult journey.
- Serve – We offered to run errands, clean the house, pay the bills, make meals, etc. while she and my dad focus on completing the treatment plan.
Here are more ideas from Cancer.net.
Do you know someone who was diagnosed with cancer? If so, how did you help him/her through his/her journey? I’d love to hear about it. Please share with us.
