How to be there for a friend that said "please don't worry about me"?

I have a friend I haven't known too long. It's been a while since we hung out (I blame covid -_-), and we were gonna meet up this week. But he called me to say he's going through a difficult personal situation concerning his best friend. And I was a bit shocked but I honestly understood why he wasn't feeling the best to meet up. I messaged him to say I would pray for the best. Because I honestly feel for him... And he said "thank you but please don't worry about me, we'll catch up soon".

Tbh, I'm a bit devastated. Now that I know he's struggling there's just no way I cannot worry. How can I be there for him?
His company in school helped me when I was going through a rough time last year, and honestly I don't how I would have gotten through this course without his help in studying.
It's just not fair that this amazing person should struggle alone...
How can I not worry? It's not possible...
