Try to not remember him about it, and cheer him/her if he's (or she is) depressed. It is not the end of the world, and it shouldn't feel that way either, even if it is a sad moment. Keep enjoying the moment and help him/her live life to the fullest!!

Try and be there for them as much as you can. It's always hard when this happens to people. My BFF and I have been apart for a very long time, separated by the Atlantic ocean for seven months. But we've managed to make it work.

This is similar. As long as you want to, you can stay by their side and help them through the worst. Anyone going through that should have someone to be there for them and have one great friend that will stay with them for as long as they can. It's always fulfilling for both you and for them if you are able to be that friend.

WOW, that really sucks. I've never had that problem with any of my friends, but really the only thing you can really provide this person is your good friendship. Be strong for him, but don't be a hero because you can't be, no one can. Hope is the only thing you can give him, and if I were sick like that, the only thing I would want from a close friend is support. Your love is really the only obligation you have, so don't pressure yourself.
Good luck to both of you<3

Sorry to hear about that...
I have been searching through my natural healing books about leukemia.
When dealing with the fatigue and depression that engulfs the body, its best to preform exercise- like stretching, aerobic, and "core" exercises. Though, its best to do that when your friend would feel up to it.

But the best thing for you to do is not stray away from your friend :)
At least, that's what I would do, and anyother person who is a true friend..

Um, hope that helped ^-^

Just continue being her friend. You'd be surprised at how many people drift away from a friend with a serious illness.

Depends on the person. Some people seek comfort in different ways than others.

I can't.

I agree with they said
what's best to do right is to be there for them
to let them know that you care
and that is hard to go through something like that.
Sorry to hear about your friend I hope they'll be all right :'>.

sounds really bad D:
maybe stem cell transplantation?
or just being here for your friend, even it looks bad or through the therapy, showing him/her some nice time ^^
