Hello - I am meeting my oldest friend of 27 years next week in Cancun. She is in England and I am in the US. This is most likely the last time I will see her due to our geographical distance. She has been diagnosed with lung and bone cancer - given 1 year to live. I am anxious about the trip and losing some sleep over it. I don't know how we both are going to react when we see each other. I am just hoping I can cope and be supportive. Additionally, my friend is a single mom and has a teenage daughter who does not know the diagnosis is terminal. It is a very sad story all around. Any advice might be helpful. You don't run into people everyday (at least I hope not) with this situation.
Thanks for your help ...
