Help a friend w/ BC

Hello Everyone.

My best friend has just been dx'd with breast cancer (Grade 1 Invasive carcinoma). I feel very helpless I am looking for suggestions/tips/advice on how to be the best friend that I can, along with helping her beat this disease.

At this point she does not know the stage or how she and her doctors will proceed. She is going for genetic testing today and an MRI on Weds.

She is trying not to look on the internet for stories or information, since the internet is not always a reliable source. I, of course, am looking and reading and driving myself batty.

It is so not fair. We always planned to be 2 old ladies living together on Miami Beach, like the Golden Girls. I am MAD, SAD, and PISSED! She is so healthy...does not smoke, eat red meat, drink. She exercise and watches what she eats.

This has been a horrible year for my friend. In Feb. her mother passed away at 58. In May, she had a miscarriage and in June a D&C. Now Oct, Dx'd with cancer.

Thanks for letting me get this out and any advice would be helpful.
