When a friend faces a serious illness, we usually want to offer support but are at a loss for words. Often, we respond with "let me know how I can help." Turns out that suggestion isn't always helpful. On the Sound of Ideas®, Regina Brett and guests talk about how loved ones, family, friends or colleagues can comfort someone battling cancer. We'll hear from a cancer therapist, a baffled family member and recovering cancer patients about what really helped, things said that seemed downright idiotic, and hear some funny moments, all the result of well-meaning people. Tips for supporting people with cancer -- what helps and what doesn't, Friday at 9 on 90.3.

Guests

Susan Marinac, Clinical Therapist, The Gathering Place
Marc Silver, author, Breast Cancer Husband: How to Help Your Wife (and Yourself) during Diagnosis, Treatment and Beyond
