  • Continue to reaffirm to her that you love her. Support her. Be there for her by listening, siting next to her when she's not feeling well, and continue being a great boyfriend.
    Cancer pts often feel like a burden to their families and loved ones. So you have to continue to be there and love her even when she tells you that it'd be easier for you if you guys broke up right now.
    I have cancer and I feel like a burden on my loved one right now. I'm not used to being helpless, dependent on others. So the best thing you can do is continue by showing her that you aren't going anywhere.
  • Hi there - I was just reading about your situation and I am so sorry about her diagnosis.  Its been a few days since you posted this, where are you both at with your relationship at this time?
