What are they going through?

Illness affects everyone differently, and you may not always understand your loved one's moods or reactions. But there are things you can do to better understand how they feel and what you can do to help:

Listen

Be there for them, and be ready to listen when they feel like talking.

Learn

Educate yourself about your loved one's condition or procedure, and ask the medical team questions when you're curious or confused.

Be there

Illness can make people uncomfortable. Your love and support is appreciated and no gesture is too small to show you care.
