My mom also went through breast cancer 3 years ago. It just came back last month in the lymph node. I have gone with my mom to all her doctor appointments, picked her up from surgery etc. my mom is divorced so this makes it even harder. I also find that when my husband I invite her over we talk about other things, rent movies and try to keep her mind off of it. I know this is very hard- but stay positive and tell you Mom that this can be beaten and is treatable.
What treatment is your mom going to require?
