The original post

“So, a little back story here. We have a friend and her daughter (we’ll call her ‘A’) has osteosarcoma bone cancer. I was talking with the friend, and she told me that ‘A’ only has about 3 months left. I offer to help move stuff around and bring some food over. I decide to bring my daughter to keep ‘A’ company. They hit it off instantly. They talked for hours and I ended up bring my daughter over again the next day.”

“Now about my daughter. She is sweet, sassy, and compassionate. Unfortunately, last year, she was getting bullied quite a lot. This led to self harm and a visit to the psyc ward. She is doing much better this year, but I am concerned. She doesn’t half ass her love. Like me, she dives head first into new relationships. She loves deeply and fully.”

“This is where the concern comes in. ‘A’ got cancer during covid. She has not been in school since. As a result, she has lost all her friends. The VERY last thing I want to do is take away a dying child’s only friend. I won’t do it, but I am worried. I told my daughter on the way home what is going on. She understands, but like the amazing person she is, she decided to set up more play dates, gave her one of her favorite stuffed animals, and is currently working on a painting for her. She is honestly one of the best people I know.”

“I feel really stupid worrying about my daughter when my friend is going to lose hers soon. Has anyone dealt with something similar. Any advice would be appreciated.”
