When a Friend has Cancer.

My best friend here in New York had surgery for Throat Cancer today. I think they feel it is beyond treatable at this point. I am struggling to take this information in. His husband just texted me "Stage 4." We're in shock right now. When we come out of shock, what can I do to help him? He is a gourmet cook, and I can burn water, so that's out. This is a sad and new experience for me and I don't want to say stupid things or overtax him with my attention. Anyone going through this? How do you deal with well-meaning friends with the best of intentions? He's a sweet guy so I know he'll try and make everyone feel comfortable. Worst nightmare scenario here.
