How should I care for someone with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma?

Understand that a diagnosis means life has changed for everyone; be supportive, and encourage seeking out support networks. Oftentimes, simply offering to cook meals, make grocery runs, or help out with other mundane chores can be tremendously helpful. Particularly when they are going through chemotherapy, people with lymphoma will require lots of rest; help facilitate that. Do what you can to be supportive, and encourage them to talk to others who might have more direct experience with what they're going through, such as doctors, nurses, councilors, clergy, or cancer survivor support groups.
