I can't believe that folks would say this. Oh wait. Yes, I can. "10 Odd Things to Say to Someone with Breast Cancer"
A few friends of mine have had cancer of one type or another. Really, the only thing I could ever think to say is something like "Oh hun, I'm so sorry. Please tell me if there's anything I can do for you. I'm here if you need to vent or anything." I didn't realize I was saying the right thing...I was only saying what I thought I would want to hear if the circumstances were reversed. I guess that's just another version of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." With that logic, you can rarely say the wrong thing to a loved one with cancer.
