The group of friends I have here at school is very tight-knit, and I’m so lucky to be a part of it. Recently, one of the friends in our group got some terrible news: her mother has breast cancer. We’re all devastated for our friend and her family, and everyone is trying to think of what they can do. Right now we’re focused on being there for our friend and listening, but we’d like to do something without her asking – whether it’s give a big gift, help her with something in her life (or help her mother directly), or donate to a relevant charity. My mind’s all over the place right now, though, as I’m sure my friends’ are too, so I thought I’d ask the experts for advice.
It’s so sad to hear of your friend’s terrible news. She’s lucky to have such a wonderful group of friends to support her during this tough time.
