Unhappy Mom's cancer is back

Hi,

I am new to the breast cancer thread. I have been a regular on the lung cancer thread. My sister died of Lung cancer this past July. My mom had breast cancer about 7 years ago and we had thought she had beat it. But, as our luck has gone the cancer is back. My sister was diagnosed 1 year ago. About the same time this year my mom's caner came back. She is in Chemo but it has already spread. She has continuos problems with fluid in her chest cavity due to the cancer. She is in a test group that has a test drug in her Chemo that is suppose to be really good at fighting this type of cancer. I hope so. I am still having a hard time with the loss of my sister and I don't know if I could handle loosing my mom. I know my Dad could not and that worries me to. The Holidays are going to be hard this year. Anyway thanks for letting me vent.

I am so sorry that your sister died and that your mother's cancer has come back. I lost my mother to lung cancer three years ago, I know the feeling of loss that you have. It is all so stressful and frustrating. I really hope and pray that it all turns out well.

I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. Also, I know how scared and frustrated you are that your mother's cancer has come back. I lost my mother to lung cancer three years ago, still can't deal with it very well. I know how hard the upcoming holidays will be for you. I'll say a prayer, ok.
