When a friend or family member is diagnosed with cancer, it’s hard to find the right words. And if we don’t know what to say, sometimes we don’t say anything and that can be the most hurtful thing of all. A regular text message can be just the right way to send encouragement. Texts are great because they are unobtrusive and have sticking power. I know personally, I kept thoughtful texts that I received and looked over them when I felt down.

If you have a friend going through cancer consider sending a little love via text today. Something as simple as a text can be just the encouragement that you friend needs to inspire a positive day. PS. It’s always good practice to end with. “No need to text back.” That way your friend doesn’t feel pressure to respond when already feeling overwhelmed.

Here are 15 short, simple, and loving things you can say:


“I’m going to be here with you through this. What can I do for you today? Can I come over with dinner for your family?”



“I am so sorry for what you are going through. Sending you positive thoughts today.”



“I hate that you are having to go through this. I’m always here to listen when you need to talk.”



“What can I do to help?”



“Just wanted to let you know how much I care about you.”



“I hope you are having a good day. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you.”



“Would I be able to keep the kids for a few hours this weekend. I’d love for you to have some down time to rest.”



“Just wanted to let you know I’m proud to call you my friend. You’ve got this!”



“I love you.”



“Know that I’m always here to keep you company when you feel like visitors.”



“I’m sorry you’re going through this. It must be very scary.”



“I hope things get easier for you soon.”



“You have been a great friend to me and helped me through some really rough times. I’m going to be here for you the way you always have been for me.”



“I’m headed to the grocery store. What can I pick up for you?”



“Wishing you comfort and peace today.”
