It's hard to know how to treat someone with cancer. Before my diagnosis I wouldn't have known what to do. Treatment is gruelling, but we do have times when we feel absolutely normal and well. Cancer also takes over your life and it can seem like that's the only thing in it. So, on the times the person feels well do and talk about normal things. The times where I've gone out for lunch or dinner or to the pub have been great, because I feel just like everyone else and not a cancer patient.
