They, for lack of better terms, seem to consume another's pain or ailment.

Cancer Eaters are usually excellent listeners & often are told that they are very easy to talk to. When meeting for the first time, other's often will say something like; "it feels like we have known each other forever" to them. That there is a perceived familiarity toward them.

An example of a cancer eater would be the ability of the main character in the movie "The Green Mile".
