What Are They Going Through?

Illness affects everyone differently and each person’s reaction is unique. Here’s how you can get a better perspective of what your loved one might be going through and how you can help them:


You can’t force your loved one to talk about how they feel. Just let them know you’re there to listen if they feel like talking.


Find out more about your loved one’s condition or procedure, and don’t hesitate to ask questions of your medical team if you still need information.

Be there

Don’t let illness create distance between yourself and your loved one. Commit to doing whatever you can. No gesture is too small.
