Get the Grief Tourist mug.
Someone who pretends to care about your chronic/serious illness on social media, but never offers their help in any real meaningful capacity.

Someone who uses your medical struggles for clout.
"Becky commented on my Facebook post about my struggle with chemo, so I asked her if she wanted to hang out. She left me on read. She's nothing but a grief tourist."

"Sandra posted about my surgery without my permission and said it's 'so hard' for her to watch me go through this."
