In brief: Suportive
Patient and relatives are affected .
Relative support is so different: some are active, doing everything. Others are detached, passive. How you act depends on your personality, and view of the cancer patient. Some are afraid, other are not. Talk to friends, clergy, social worker, nurses and oncologist for advice. Cancer clinics usually have brochures, and office to help you with your needs.
