Supporting a Woman with Breast Cancer

Posted on: October 22nd, 2015 in Health by vgmforbin |

Supporting A Woman with Breast Cancer

Among American women, the most common form of cancer is Breast Cancer. Approximately 1 in 8 women will face that diagnosis at some point in her life, which means you may have an acquaintance, friends, mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or other loved one who has breast cancer. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought we would touch on the subject of breast cancer in today’s blog—and what you can do to support a friend or loved one who is battling the disease:

  • Let her know she is in your thoughts

This means making a phone call, sending a card, reaching out through text or social media. Sometimes, people are hesitant to talk about cancer with a patient because they do not want to seem invasive or bothersome. However, simply letting a woman know that you are thinking about her can help.

  • Help her with her normal routine

It can be really hard to keep up a normal life when a patient has to attend numerous doctor’s appointments. Offer to help around the house, such as running errands, watching after the kids or picking up groceries.

  • Give a listening ear

She’ll have a lot on her mind, and she’ll need someone to talk to about it. Her diagnosis, her care and the fate of her family will be on her mind. The best you can do is lend an ear.

  • Attend doctor’s appointments

Not having to face this alone can go a long way to helping raise her spirits to battle this thing. Offer to go along on a doctor’s visit, listen to what the doctor says, and be prepared to discuss her options with her.

At Medical Department, we seek to help women in their health journey. That’s why we carry mastectomy products in our online catalog.
