Re: Friend newly diagnosed with lung cancer
There is always hope. Look at Lance Armstrong. Read his book It's not about the Bike for inspiration. It will not be easy but he should not give up hope nor should his friends. There is so much to be said for mental attitude in healing but I also feel that sometimes there comes a time when you have to be accepting of your fate
. He will know if that time comes and will depend of his friends for love but not false hope. I would always be honest.
