Our tenants are 14 days late with the rent. We found out that the wife may have gotten news that her cancer has returned. Not wanting to be insensitive how can we handle getting our rent?

You should send them a late rent notice saying how much rent is due plus a late fee.  Ask if they would like to sign a payment plan to get caught up.  Have them sign a promissary note with a payment plan that states how much they will pay on what dates so that they may get back on track.  If, however, they cannot keep the payment plan, you will have to ask them to move since they can no longer afford the place.  You can be sympathetic, but you are not a charity and most probably cannot afford to carry the mortgage yourself.

If they have plan for rent then no issues. Other wise let them some time sympathetically for due.

I'm sorry for your loss.  Is this causing you to be late on your rent?  Or is it that you can't collect the rent from your tenants that you post here?

Problem with this business is sometimes you have to do things that could appear to others as insensitive.  Regardless of health issues, family issues, or financial issues or even someone losing their job it at the end of the day isn't your problem.  Yes, you can grant them sympathy and try to work with them if they are a good tenant.  However, this is a business.  With any business you have bills to pay.  Rent has to be paid so you may pay those bills.  If it were me, I would give them a notice of non payment of rent as a courtesy.  I would then wait a few days and then start eviction process. Business is business, and those with hearts lose money in this realm of business.
