Some info on Gilda's Club.
See if she can find a local Gilda's Club in her area. Try to get
her to go to the cancer patient group. Membership is free, you
just fill out a one page form. Membership is free to family too,
and there are support groups for them too.
They offer great support groups, she can meet friends who are
going through something similar. Gilda's also has a workout
room, and quiet rooms where you can think, work on a computer,
or lie down and take a nap (they even have blankets and pillows
there for ya.) There are also plenty of bathrooms on each floor
for people who don't feel well. In most bathrooms there is a
chair, so you don't have to sit on the floor while contemplating
the "porcelain throne". They also have candles in the bathrooms
for a calming effect.
They also have a library where you can sign out books, or just
sign out audio CDs with relaxing music. The people and members
there are very supportive.
They even have a washer and dryer there with a spare set of
sweats in case you have an accident. (It happens, you know.)
