Re: what to i send to a very sick male friend

I'm glad you're not sending flowers.  They are waaay too overpriced, if you ask me.  And if money is an issue--you just saved yourself some!

 

Perhaps you could send a gift card for a grocery store or a nearby restaurant that they could get delivery?  You'll helping out him and his daughter by feeding a couple of mouths or getting some needed supplies.  Even the luxury of one meal delivered/pickup will help her and him. 

 

You may not be in optimum physical or financial shape, but you have a heart made of gold.

Having had cancer myself...continue to be his friend.  Be there when he says he needs something and be there when he doesn't say a word.  

 

Treat him as you did before his diagnosis.  He is still the same person, he just has cancer now.

Re: what to i send to a very sick male friend

When I was nine yrs.old I had surgery due to polio.  A family friend gave me a box of small presents.  There was a hitch to the presents, however.  I could only open one a day.How I looked forward to picking out a gift a day!

 

I never forgot that and now, as an adult, I do that friends that are ill.  I look for things inexpensive...sometimes gag gifts...but there is always one that is a bit more special.

My husband just passed away from cancer.  What he enjoyed the most was lottery scratch tickets in a card with a short note-always cheered him up-something he could DOHeart
