Couple walking and talking about cancer

10 Things Cancer Patients Secretly Wish You Would Stop Saying

Cancer happens. In fact, it happens to over 38% of the world’s population.

Almost every adult in the world has had a family member or friend who has dealt with cancer. You might be surprised by some of the things people say to cancer patients, but indeed the wrong things get said every day. If you want to let your loved one know that you care, there are ways of going about it without saying the wrong thing. Besides being shocked by some of the horrific things that have been said to cancer patients, you might also be surprised by some of the things that you may view as positive and heartfelt that cancer patients actually wish you wouldn’t say. Here are 10 things cancer patients secretly wish you would stop saying.

Are you are having trouble finding the right words?  Read our article here about how to write a meaningful and heartfelt letter.

#1 - “Let me know if you need anything.”

This might seem like a general thing to say, but that’s just it. It is general. It doesn’t mean much to someone with cancer and leaves things open-ended and almost empty feeling. How is a cancer patient supposed to respond to that? What if they indeed asked you for something that you couldn’t do for them? Are they literally supposed to believe you would do “anything” for them? Don’t ask a cancer patient this empty question.

#2 - “Why would God do something like this to you?”

First of all, it's usually best to leave religion out of your talks with a cancer patient. Secondly, a statement like this gives them the sense that you believe a greater power did this to them for some sort of a reason. It gives the sense that there is something wrong they did to deserve a punishment. Leave higher powers out of the discussion in most cases.

#3 - “Did you smoke at all? Was it second-hand smoke? How did you get it?”

Smoking is not the cause of all cancers, and neither is second-hand smoke. A question like this only shows you are trying to put someone or something at fault which is not at all what the cancer patient wants to think about. And even if they did know how their cancer developed, it’s not something they want to have a discussion about just because you asked.

#4 - “Positivity is everything. Keep being positive. You have to stay positive.”

Positivity is not the cure for cancer. There have been many positive people who have died from cancer, just like there have been many negative people who have survived cancer. No one should have to stay positive, and no - positivity is not everything. And for the cancer patient who knows this, telling them that they have to stay positive is showing your own selfishness because you want them to be positive for others like yourself.

#5 - “Everything will be okay.”

This is another empty statement that many cancer patients hate hearing. No one knows if everything will be okay, not even their doctor. People can hope and try to make some things better than they would be, but no one really knows. It is impossible for every single thing to be okay, especially for a cancer patient, so don’t make yourself sound naive in saying that every single thing will be just fine.

# 6 - “Have you tried ______ ?”

Don’t ever think you have the magic potion for curing cancer. Billions of dollars have been spent trying to figure this out, and if it were easy enough for you to find the magic potion or pill or mindset to cure cancer, everyone would do it and cancer wouldn’t exist. But it does exist, it does happen, and you voicing what you think they should try in order to cure their cancer doesn’t help one bit.

#7 - “If you pray hard enough, you will be cured.”

If this were true, there would be no need for medicine or therapy or any sort of treatment. And on another note, saying something like this not only gives unwanted and false advice but also tells the cancer patient that if they don’t indeed become cured, that it was their fault for not praying hard enough.

#8 - “Have you planned your funeral / written your will / prepared for your death?”

Questions like this do get asked, and cancer patients don’t like hearing them. These subjects should only be talked about by those that the cancer patient feels close enough to talk to them about. If you’re not one of them, don’t ask about their funeral, their will, or any sort of preparations for their death. We all die someday, and no one is ever fully prepared for it.

#9 - “What if your hair doesn’t grow back? / Are you worried about losing your hair?”

Not all cancer patients lose their hair. And even for those that will lose their hair, it’s not something you should push your worry onto. Cancer patients have so much more to worry about besides the possibility of losing their hair, and even if they were actually worried about it, they wouldn’t want to be reminded of this worry by you.

#10 - “Live every day like it’s your last.”

Although this seems like a very positive statement, it gives a cancer patient the sense that you believe they will be having their last day soon. And on top of that, it’s difficult enough for a cancer patient to eat food, let alone getting out of bed in the morning. Don’t voice your opinion that they should be living it up and doing all the things they want to do.  Most of the time they wouldn’t have the energy or will to do these things in the first place.

Among these 10 things cancer patients secretly wish you would stop saying, one thing to make absolutely clear is that you should also not just be silent. Besides anything you shouldn’t say to a cancer patient, the worst is not saying anything at all. If you care about your loved one, you will simply be there for them. You will talk to them. Not being there at all through what could be one of the worst experiences of their life shows a lot. Talk to them. Be caring. But most of all, be present.

Humorous words of encouragement for cancer patients

Humorous Words of Encouragement for Cancer Patients

Your friend or loved one has cancer, and you are looking for some humorous words of encouragement.

It can be difficult to come up with the right words to use in these situations, and often you just don’t know what to say.

You might be surprised to know that many cancer patients would prefer to hear some humorous words and have a laugh with you instead of hearing the same overthought overly-heartfelt response that everyone else has been telling them. 

Cancer doesn’t have to be depressing and lead to the same conversation over and over.  Instead, here are some funny and humorous words of encouragement that just might lighten the mood, and put a smile on their face so that you can enjoy your time together.

Humorous Words Of Encouragement For Cancer Patients - Inspire with Humor

Here are some humorous yet inspiring words of encouragement that you can use in different situations to both encourage and inspire the cancer patient, while still adding a bit of humor. Some of these aren’t for everyone but you’ll find at least one that works for you.

For those believing cancer to be their life - “Cancer is a word. Not a sentence.”

Here’s one for the patient who believes they’re broken - “Broken crayons still color.”

One for the patient who’s worried about not progressing or taking a step backward - “Hey, taking a step backward after taking a step forward isn’t a disaster, it’s more like a cha-cha.”

Words to a cancer patient you are close with - “Thoughts and prayers are great, but if you need some good drugs, I’m your guy!”

A somewhat darker joke for the patient with a strong sense of humor - “Well, they say laughter is the best medicine… Unless you have cancer, in which case chemotherapy is probably more effective.”

For the cancer patient worried about dying - “We’re all going to die someday. I could slip on a banana tomorrow and WHAM. That could be the end of me!”

An inspiring set of words - “Cancer can take away your physical abilities, but it will never touch your soul.”

Letting The Cancer Patient Know You’ll Be With Them Through Everything

Besides the words you say, what really encourages cancer patients is to know and believe that you will be with them not just after they beat the cancer, but while they are fighting through it. Here are some humorous words of encouragement that let them know you’ll be with them through everything.

Put a smile on their face with this one - “If you need someone to talk to, I’ll tell you all my bad jokes. Maybe some good ones. Probably just the bad ones. My point is I’ll be here to tell them.”

Invite yourself to do something with the patient - “It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. What are we doing, today?”

Don’t just let the cancer patient know you’ll bring them food if they want any. Tell them very specifically that you will be joining them for dinner - “I’m not the best cook, and I might burn my house down while trying, but what do you want for dinner tonight? Can I join?”

And for the cancer patient who’s having a craving, it’s important that they eat, so let them know you’ll bring them whatever they want - “I’ve got my phone in my hand ready to call any restaurant you want. Let’s eat tonight. What are we having?”

Let them know you completely understand - “This/cancer sucks. I love you. I’m going to kick cancer’s ass with you. What should we do first?”

Tell the patient what you would do to cancer - “If I could rip that cancer from your body I would. But I’m not an exorcist. Let’s do something else instead.”

For the cancer patient who enjoys a good scoop or two of ice cream, call them on the phone - “Welcome to your favorite ice cream store. Can I take your order? Seriously, I’m here, what flavor do you want?”

Words That Tell The Cancer Patient To Not Give Up

Sometimes a cancer patient needs a humorous kick in the butt to keep them going. Sometimes a purely inspirational quote or saying will do, but what’s even better is to add your own humor to it. Here are a handful of words that tell the cancer patient to not give up.

When the patient says they are dying from cancer - “You’re not dying from cancer, you’re living with cancer. And one day you’ll be living without it.”

An inspiring set of words - “You have cancer. But cancer will never have YOU!”

Bring out the fighter in the patient - “Cancer may have started the fight, but you are going to finish it.”

Remind them of the guy who gave up - “Hey remember that guy who gave up? Neither does anyone else.”

For the patient who has been told they’re wrong or made a bad decision - “Whatever you decide, there’s always someone to tell you that you’re wrong. Screw that guy. You make your own decisions.”

Here’s one for the cancer patient who believes they are a failure - “I’ve failed plenty of times. Who cares? Fail again. Just try and fail a little bit better this time.”

Remind them about the time they’ll have with you after they beat cancer - “Don’t give up. Don’t you want to keep hearing my bad jokes and terrible stories?”

A Final Note About Using Humor For Encouragement

Just a little bit of humor can go a long way for a cancer patient. With the negative thoughts in their head and sometimes even negative words they hear from others, it might just be that one funny thing you said that brings a smile to their face in a time of despair.

Some of these words and sayings won’t work well for every person, so pick and choose what you think would bring a smile to their face. If there are a few words that would sound natural coming out of your mouth, say them.

It’s better to say the words than it is to wonder if they could have helped in some way. You don’t have to make them laugh every time you talk with them, but giving them even a little bit of joy during their rocky journey can bring hope and happiness into their life, even when you’re not there.

Inspirational gifts for cancer patients

Inspirational Gifts for Cancer Patients

Inspirational gifts for cancer patients can provide much-needed hope and determination during treatment.

For cancer patients and survivors, days can be tough, full of hard choices, pain, and fear.  We want to ease that hardship and make them feel better.

Coffee in a cherished mug may remind a friend in treatment that small victories matter. For a loved one, wearing a special t-shirt may be a way to embrace each day with hope. The best gift, though, is that these items remind them of you.

In the fight against cancer, love and community are vital to making treatment more tolerable and finding motivation in each day.

Here is a compilation of products that will comfort your loved one, that celebrates victories large and small and that will remind them that you care and they are loved.

What I love about this necklace is that it celebrates the victory over cancer, by the color of the ribbon wrapped around the engraved message. The pendant is sturdy and heavy, just like the battle over the disease, and it recognizes that no war is won alone and without struggle. Give this to your proud survivor and you’ll see in their smile how they relate to this message.

What could be better than this motivational and attractive bottle to motivate healthy hydration?  This stainless steel bottle is safe to use with hot and cold drinks, and the Believe motif is a graphic reminder of hope.  Drinking fluids is challenging during treatment, and every little bit of motivation to keep well-hydrated helps.

  • Sometimes what you need is a literal embrace of hope. This super soft throw has a Scripture inscription of Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” In those moments when your loved one feels cold, the warmth of this blanket and its words will make things better. Faith is a powerful healer and the comfort of Scripture on the plush fleece may strengthen their faith and give them peace.

    WillowTree sculptures are crafted with deep love and an intention behind them. This one, written on a card enclosed with the beautiful figure, states ”May you find strength, beauty, and peace each day.”  Looking at this serene praying angel, cloaked in the Tree of Life, helps us find in each breath a moment of solace. Sometimes, that’s what we need to find the positive in our day.

    “Life is tough but I am tougher” is the mantra of the fighter in you. This cancer survivor bracelet also has a bangle of a ribbon and another of the word Hope.  The stainless steel it is constructed with is you, the tough warrior that endured and came on top. With this bracelet you are saying that you remember, you endured and won, and you are looking into the future. All in style!

    50 Days of hope inspirational journal was written by a person who understands what it is like to get a cancer diagnosis. She needed hope, and so do we. This journal offers true stories and inspiration for 50 days and allows us to document our hopes and fears, our questions, and our experience. Finding out you or a loved one has cancer is confusing, scary and debilitating. Detangling these emotions by writing them down, along with the faith expressed in this journal’s pages, aides us in making decisions and caring better for ourselves.

    This book is full of true stories, quotes, and scripture from the NIV that aim to break the stereotype of cancer as a do-it-all. Cancer cannot break the love you feel for each other. Cancer cannot destroy hope or faith. The book is uplifting, inspiring and a for a person struggling, it brings comfort and strength.

    Chemo is tough! Our body changes, we are tired and don’t feel like ourselves. This t-shirt with the quote “Fighting cancer, going through chemo, and still this sexy” is a funny way to celebrate that we are still ourselves. Take it to your next chemo session and you will not only feel better, but you will also make everyone around you chuckle.

    This blanket feels like a hug, full of warmth and softness. It has words of comfort and healing that can help both the sick and their caregivers. When you wrap yourself in this blanket, every part of it has words of hope and inspiration.  Getting this as a gift always brings a smile and a lasting feeling of being loved and cared for.

    This small wall plaque reminds us of the things necessary to get through any difficult time. It reads “Always remember you are braver than you think, stronger than you seem and loved more than you know.”  When my friend was struggling and her confidence was at an all-time low, these words by her bedside helped ground her. Getting through cancer takes inner strength and outward support, and this little box plaque is a quick reminder.
