A really good friend was just diagnosed last week with Stage 2 NHL. I live too far away from her to be able to see her more than occasionally, but she doesn't have much family support. I will do everything possible to be there for her as much as I can, but I recommended that she join a support group (like this) because even if I could be there every day, I know I can't help as much as others who are currently sharing her experiences, or have been there in the past. I feel like she really needs someone to physically be there that she can spend time with, but what can I do to be supportive from a distance? I don't want her to do this alone.
