As I mentioned yesterday, I am frequently asked: What should I say (or not say) to my friend/sister/loved one who has been diagnosed with FBC (f-bomb breast cancer).
FBC is a pickle (understatement of the year!) all the way around. People mean well, but when some things are said, they aren’t received quite as well as intended. So, during this month that is devoted nationally to Breast Cancer Awareness, I thought I’d share some things that are commonly said (cloud) and better ways to say them (Silver Lining).
My intention with these posts is to acknowledge how FBC patients feel and to offer positive Silver Lining ways to interact with people who are coping with the dreaded disease.
I hope that these are helpful to you! As always, I’d love your input!
