Help with her finances
During treatment personal costs can often increase: for example gas bills to
assist to the hospital, hospital bills, childcare and other things. If the
household budget is already tight, this can add to the family’s stress. More
often than not women with breast cancer have to step back from paid work as
they may feel unwell, tired or have to travel for treatment. If appropriate,
ask your friend how you can help them financially. By assisting in this way,
you can help relieve some of the pressure and anxiety during this time.
