I am very sorry to read about your friend’s
diagnosis and of how hard this is impacting you. Everyone reacts to this news like
this differently and there are no right or wrong reactions. Reactions can be as
unique as friendships. If it helps, we have lots of practical information on
ways you can help as well as support for you, available on our website here:
Lots of people tell us that it helps to talk
about the situation and you are very welcome to contact us on the Support Line
if you would like to chat about your thoughts and feelings. As we know, this
time of year can be particularly difficult for families and friends so we feel
it is important that we are open every day over Christmas. Should you wish to
contact us, details of our opening hours can be found here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/marie-curie-support-line.
