How to offer support to your cancer-struggling friend?

12 Oct

I just went to visit my best girl-friend last night. She is in the hospital for physical and speech therapy caused by stroke. She has stage-4 cervix cancer, already finished her chemo and radiation treatment. I believe her mind is clear even she won’t talk. She seems to have a lot of anger. Anybody has any idea about how to offer some kind support for her to fight with the cancer? She won’t talk, won’t eat, very weak, I am afraid she is giving up but she should not, because she has three kids, the youngest one is only 10-year old. I know I should not be judgmental but it hurts so much to watch her going away slowly. What shall I do?
