There is a woman at my work who was recently diagnosed with BC. I do not know her, as I work in a very large federal office building. I know she was recently diagnosed because an all hands e-mail was sent asking for personal leave to be donated to her while she goes through her treatment. I feel like I should go up and introduce myself and let her know that my wife is still fighting breast cancer and let her know that if she ever needs someone to talk to that she can call my wife. I also wanted her to know that if her husband (not sure if she has one or not) has any questions about the road ahead to please call me. My question is; Is this OK or would it be out of line ? What would you all think if some strange guy came up to you and introduced himself and talked to you about a very personal issue (BC). I certainly don't want to upset or offend her, but I lso know that it would have really helped when my wife was diagnosed for her to have someone to talk to who had or was going through the same thing she was about to go through. Also I would have loved to have a BC husband to talk to to get insite as to what to expect while being a care giver. Thanks all !! God Bless!!
