I had this really weird dream last night that I was giving someone from cancer research a donation. The lady gave me a gold heart pin. I didn't think much more of it till my friend called just as Smallville was about to start.

Alexander, my friends 18 month son has cancer. They found little lumps on him and told her yesterday it's cancer. I don't have the faintest idea what it is, I am so frightened. I don't know what to do.

Just be there if she needs you, baby. That's the best thing you can do, just let her know you're there.

I am so frightened. I don't know what to do.

Be there to listen when they need to vent. Offer a shoulder to cry on when emotions run too high. Give them hugs with comforting arms when words just don't seem to be enough. And most importantly, simply let them know you are there for them. Those are the best words you can ever offer.

Yeah, I know what you mean by that, but coming from experience in the giving and receiving end, your friends aren't going to expect any more than that. You aren't the cause of their child's health condition, so there is no need for you to say "I'm sorry," and you aren't the doctors who are expected to have the answers to their prayers. Your love and support during this time is all you can offer, and all they will need.

My thoughts and prayers go out ot you and your friends.
