A Letter to Friends
What can you do to help your friend with breast cancer? WebMD turned to the women in our breast cancer community to find out.

No woman with breast cancer wants to feel dependent or indebted. So when you ask, "What can I do to help?" you may hear, "Oh, nothing right now. I'll call you if I need you."
It's not true! We all need help during treatment. We are just too tired and too stressed out to "do it all."
So don't ask. Just do it. WebMD asked our members with breast cancer for ideas they all would have dearly loved during treatment. Please pass this around. Your friend fighting cancer will thank you.
