I'm not really sure if this belongs here, but lets give it a go. - December 27th 2014, 11:07 PM

My sister has cancer. I'm not sure what to do to help. She gets very ill, and she has to have surgery that could potentially end her life. We have been dealing with this since she was seven years old. She is twenty now. She has come such a long away, and I would really hate to see all this personal strength and growth lead to nothing. She already has a hard time with Depression and Self harm. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to help her cope with the possibility of her dying. She is by far my best friend. I'm positive the is the only friend I have. She is always there for me not only as a sister, but just as one of the guys when I need her to be. She loves me and accepts me for who I am, even when our family doesn't seem to, and she is by far the most amazing person I could have ever asked to be in my life, and I just feel so lost and helpless. I want to be able to fold her in my arms and let her feel the love I have for her. She is the only sibling and only friend I have. I truly have no clue what I would do without her.

Hey there Eric,
Wow I'm really sorry to hear about your sister. It must be so difficult to deal with it, as someone so close. She sounds amazing how she is there for you even with all she is going through inside. I just want to let you know that personal strength and growth won't lead to nothing, because such things can be shared and spread. I think something you can do for her is create something. Whether it is a craft, an artwork, a song, or a combination it might be healing for you as well as for her. Not only would you give her something but you'd be expressing something and communicating something to her that she gets to keep. That's the first thing that comes to mind. A second thing you could do is start a project together. I know she is ilI but there are things she can do in bed such as writing a story together. Another shared activity you can do is read a book, taking turns reading aloud or taking turns showing each other videos and watching them together. Or another project that involves things that you don't need much physical materials for. Things that you carry up in your head or in your heart. Imagination can go a long way, and so many different forms.
Be sure to take care of yourself too. I'm not sure if you suffer from depression or another condition but all this is probably impacting you too.
Take care and stay strong
