When you don’t know what to do or say…

Cultural Cancer etiquette
A useful read, because when it happens to you, or to someone in your family, in the shock that’s sure to follow, all of life’s wisdom seem evaporate... You are near or apart, and want to do (something, anything) and help, but not sure what and how and don’t have the words. Only the cliches.
And to know that it doesn’t matter what you say, just showing support is enough, and is best and it’s sometimes all you can do is reassuring… even if that’s an email, a text or chat if you are twenty thousand km’s away from the loved ones who are suffering… and from those who are suffering no more…
