I agree with anon. her boyfriend will have to make whatever decision he chooses ( though it's d\sad that his family is resorting to emotional blackmail involving his dying grandmother to force him to do as they say ). Your task will be to stand by your friend and provide her with emotional support, and to respond to what she says, rather than having anything special you can say
