Supporting a coworker with cancerIt's never easy to know what to say to someone who has just told you they have cancer. We want to help. We don't want to hurt. And many say the wrong thing or scramble for the right words and end up saying nothing.
In a recent article, Fast Company suggested a few things to remember when cancer hits your place of employment.
- If you're told by someone else, give the person space and privacy.
- Let them know you care through a card, a small gift, a few words of support, or an offer to help with specific things such as dinners or driving kids to sports.
- Whatever you do, don't tell a horror story about someone else's experience. It's not helpful.
