My 9-year-old son has a friend named Eddy that is very sick. It broke my heart to have to tell him his best friend has cancer. He cried himself to sleep 2 nights in a row after that. That was 3 months ago. We were hopeful that Eddy would respond to treatment and these 2 boys would be playing together again soon. I have just found out that that will not be the case. Now I have to prepare myself for the awful task of telling my son he is going to lose his best friend soon. Children normally learn about the death and grief of a loved one through pets and grandparents first. Maybe other older people who have come into there lives. This prepares them for the day when they will have to say bye to a parent or someone close. But this...this is too soon. He's not ready. S##t! Neither am I. So I'm going to post a link to his friend Eddy's gofundme page. Please help! Please share.
