What to Say or (or Not to Say) #4


I know that the majority of things said to cancer patients are well intended. I really do. This is the reason that during this month dedicated to breast cancer awareness, I’m offering alternative (Silver Lining) things for people to say to/do for their friends and loved ones.

So, next up in the series of What to Say (or Not to Say) to someone with FBC revolves around feelings. Below is something that was said to me quite a bit…and what I would have preferred to hear.

I sure hope that these are helpful to you.  As always, I’d love and appreciate your input and feedback!

    I love today's quote from Albert Camus! Just had to pin it.

    "In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me,
    an invincible summer."

    Thanks for all the wonderful quotes you share, Hollye.
