    Default Just found out a friend has wks to live :(

    A friend of mine got diagnosed with breast cancer in feb last year. She's been fighting it and has been on the mend. She sadly now has been overtaken and has been given weeks to live she has a young family (6yrs, 4yrs and 1yr) so it's devastating. I want to do something to let them know I care and to kind of say goodbye. I don't however know if they are just seeing family now etc, so don't want to turn up at their house. We are friends, but not besties or close close friends so don't want to overstep. I was thinking of maybe sending flowers and a card? I just don't know what's appropriate

    Any ideas or help? Xx

    Oh how devastating. I think flowers and a card to let her know you're thinking of her would be lovely

    Flowers and card would be lovely, even a home made meal dropped over for them I'm sure would be appreciated

    Hugs to your friend and her family.

    I would say drop around but very quickly. They will tell you if they want you around at the time you drop things off.

    I would offer a playdate for the kids. She could probably do with an arvo off.
