Love ; support: Love and support are the most meaningful gifts you can give. If you are a person of faith - consider praying with and for the person. Let the person know that they are cherished. Take care.

Could someone get breast cancer at 30?

Yes but rare: It is possible to get breast cancer in the 30's if there are high risk factors: family history of young breast cancer, BRCA gene mutation carriers (aka Angelina Jolie), atypia in a breast biopsy. If you have any concern, you should find a breast specialist for evaluation or a risk risk program at your local breast cancer center.
