What's the point in being a friend if you walk away when your friend needs you most? I wouldn't be able to live with myself knowing that when it really counted, I just walked. It would hurt to see, and be hard to handle. But it's not about me. It's about my friend.
I could never ever walk away from a friend who had cancer. I saw how much support helped my mom when she was battling cancer which she lost. My friends mean more to me then my family does and I could never let them go through something so awful alone.
My Best friend had Cancer and I was with her during a lot of it, I would never turn my back on her in a time of need because that is not a true friend and I know she wouldn't either.
If I knew, I would be supportive. If they didn't tell me, then were not tight like that, I guess.
my friendships are through thick and thin
Support them. All we have is each other.
If you walk away from someone who has cancer you're not really their friend, so the only valid answer would be the former.
