Because You Matter
and there doesn’t seem to be a lot out there to support those with SCLC

Cancer sucks, and so does talking about it. Telling someone you have cancer almost always leads to a) awkward silence; b) a well-meaning yet irritating response; or c) some combination of the two. There are tons of reasons why this happens, but it comes down to this.
“I have cancer” are heavy words that carry a ton of emotions and anxieties. And when people hear it, they know they should say something, but they just don’t know what.
Sometimes, without knowing it, they end up saying something really hurtful.
