    I am looking for help with how to help my partner deal with her father's recent diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. I know she is dealing with a lot and she has had ups and downs. Sometimes I don't know what to say or do. I know there are times she just needs me to be there and listen and let her cry on my shoulder. There are other times I feel like I should say or do something to help her deal. Any suggestions from people dealing with cancer as a loved one would be appreciated. What do others do to help you during this tough time? Thank you.
