How can I help a friend who will be undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for the next few months?

She's expected to make a full recovery. But in order to kill any remaining cancer cells, for the next 2 months she'll be undergoing chemotherapy, and then 1 month of radiation therapy afterwards.
