Just tell her honestly that you’re really sorry about the news, but you wish her all the best with her treatment and hopefully this is the beginning of something positive. And see if you can take her out for coffee or if she wants to come over to watch a silly movie. Above all, let her know you care and you’re there for her.

@mrssrm:  great advice!

Just be genuine to her. Don’t fake anything, just speak freely and from the heart. She probably just needs a friend. Try to speak to her in person though, not over text if you can avoid it.

Most people who are going through something rough don’t want advice–they want support and understanding and sympathy. I agree with PP–just let her know that you care, and that you are there for her, willing to listen when she needs. Your heart will come through.
