From the Inside Flap:

We Carry Each Other is the definitive resource on what to say and do when you or a loved one suffer illness or loss. What do you say to a friend with invasive cancer whose body is rejecting her second transplanted kidney? How do you answer when she says, "I'm really scared this time"? How do you comfort your next-door neighbor when she calls to say that her husband died in his sleep? And, what do you do if you are a fiercely independent, single mom who is suddenly brought to her knees when she finds her teenage son is dying?
