Two friends of mine have told me they have cancer. They are both stay-at-home moms with large families-one has five children. I don't want to be one of those friends who says they will be there and then disappear-these women are going to need real help and support in the next months and years of their lives, and I will be there to help them. The most obvious things are providing meals and helping take the kids to school and to after-school activities, but I was wondering what else can I do to help them and their families get through this difficult time. I apologize if my post seems a little short or unemotional; frankly I'm still in shock... Thanks in advance for any help.
