This is awesome! A friend of mine has cancer, and isn't revealing much about it, but this list will be a great way for us to talk about how we may help her when she's feeling social (or antisocial, and maybe needs more pampering than she wants to explicitly ask for.)
I've often counseled my husband how, as a depressive myself, sometimes I would say (back when things were really bad) I didn't want people over, but for me, if they showed up and we watched a movie together, it was a way for me to feel included, but no effort - only conversations if I felt like it and hit pause, but otherwise, we can just watch things together. Not the same thing, of course, but I like pointing out the diversity of levels of interaction people want or can cope with, which may not match what they can articulate.

I hope your friend gets good care and good support!
