When friends share their bad news, is it worse to say the wrong thing, or say nothing at all? Artist Emily McDowell compiled all the sentiments she wished her friends had said as she fought cancer and created Empathy Cards: a line of cards that give us the words we struggle to say when a loved one is hurting.
In There is No Good Card for This, McDowell and Dr. Kelsey Crowe use charts, illustrations, and humor to relate specific examples of support for friends in need. They also explain why the wrong words are hurtful, and why listening is the most powerful display of empathy we can give to one another.
