    That sucks bro, I wish your mom the best and for something good to change, I know where your coming from and at least they told you. I had a member of my family not tell anyone until a week before it was to late. It was hard and changed a few of us. But remember the Lord works in mysterious ways. The best thing you can do is exactly what your doing, ask, read, and learn more about it, maybe you'll find something useful.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. If you help her to stay strong mentally her body will want to fight it more. I think its proven that a healthy mind helps the body to be strong, something to do with hormones/chemicals maybe. All the best bro

    Sorry to hear that. Keep a positive attitude, and help keep her happy. Thats the best advice I can give you. My grandma had cancer, and beat it at 60 years old. Best wishes for your family in the New Year.

    What you can do is be strong for your mother...be there for her and know that because you have cancer doesnt mean it;s an automatic death sentence. With todays medicine more people are surviving cancer than ever before. Just stay strong and keep her in positive spirits.

    I'd say lots of love dawg, for real, that is what she needs.

    The medical field will give her what she needs to survive, you will just assure that by keeping her lively and happy.

    Best wishes to you and your mother.

    my grandma had caner 10 years ago and beat it. why she continues to smoke and drink ill never know, but it hasnt come back. She lost hair, felt like crap, all that jazz...but the chemo paid off.

    What can you do? Keep her in a positive attitude. Try to make her laugh and smile as much as you can. Make sure she doesnt harbor any unescessary negative emotions(they make the body sick). Encourage prayer and meditation, even if she's not religious. Studies have shown this has positive effect on patients.
    Other than that, im sure healthy diet and vitamins are in order(except vitamin C, since ther is conflicting info with that and cancer) If it was my mom. i wouls be making sure she was taking vitamins, fish oils, and watchibg carbs. Insulin has receptor sites on cancer cells, so lose the carbs as much as possible. Cancer cells are anaerobic(they need glucose to survive) so i figure its best to starve those bastards and go near keto. Inflammation and cancer are related, so thats why fish oils are good. Theres alot of stuff out there about calcium deficiency being a major cause of cancer. I havent decided if the calcium stuff is hype or not but you might want to get her some just in case.
    If she is into excersise, make sure she isnt overdoing it. Excersise creates free radicals. Free radicals are a cause of cancer.

    None of this is a miracle cure, but it sure as heck cant hurt.

    And yes, give her your love, the most important ingredient of all.

    That sucks man, believe me I know how you feel , I lost my daughter to cancer when she was just three and a half years old. As Swole says, love is the best thing you can give her man, just be there for her whenever you can.

    Sorry to hear that, I don't know if there are any supplements she should take besides the ones the doctor says.

    I'm very sorry to hear this. As the others have stated just give her your love and spend as much time as you can with her. Also, the treatments could be 100% successful and she will be fine.

    I hope all works out.

    It isn't over until it's over, Girlfriend. Don't let her give up, especially at this stage. If one doc says "hopeless", get her to another one. It is in our nature to fight the good fight, run the good race, and in the end, be able to say we gave it our best shot. She might beat this thing.

    My mother died a few years ago of brain cancer. What she wanted the most, in her last weeks, was to talk about old times. I told her she had been a teriffic mother and all that. We all tried to not make a big hairy crying-ass deal about it, and she went out with the dignity she deserved. She had fought this thing for years, without us knowing. I often wonder if she would have had a better chance with all of us knowing and rooting for her and digging up more resources. But it was her life, and her choice, and she didn't want to be a big bother, I guess. That was her way.

    Damn I guess I am having a serious estrogen attack. I feel for you, Rob. This won't be easy to deal with. Try to help keep up her QUALITY of life... with a serious, possibly terminal, ilness, that is at least as important as the LENGTH of life. My mother got to do a lot of pretty cool stuff, and met a lot of pretty cool people, before she got where she couldn't get up and around anymore. We all did our best on that. We even got a certain actor, one of her favorites back in the 60's and 70's, to come visit for a couple of hours. She was on lots of pain meds and confessed that she had met him once, right after he did a movie set near where she worked, and she noticed he had really bad B.O. We all cracked up about that LOL! But I guess she had wanted to tell him that over 20 years ago and finally she got her chance, and the meds had her mellow enough that she didn't think anything of it. But he was really cool about it and gave her a big hug and thanks for watching his movies and stuff, and I thought that was really cool of him, especially since she wasn't exactly looking her best. But things like that not only helped her deal with it, but really it helped us a lot more. She honestly didn't give a shit half the time, I suspect, but we all thought we were helping, and that helped us. She played her part and that helped us, too. Wheels within wheels. Maybe she was really orchestrating the whole thing, I don't know. All I know is we all did our best to

    Well I think I have to finishe this later. Lots of memories.

    I wish she had told us early on, before she did, as soon as she found out. I really feel like more could have been done to increase her chances. Just a feeling, is all, but it won't go away. You are lucky. You won't be worrying about that. You have a chence to help. There is time to see other specialists.

    This is kind of a hard post to reply to at the moment. I think I'll butt out until the morning. Good luck and God Bless you and your Mother and the rest of your family.

    Love
    Anna

    I just cried a little bit bro! Im sooooooooo sorry to hear this, but I know EXACTLY what your feeling.. My dad finished treatments at the start of summer.. The technology is amazing these days, and most doctors are so compasionate! What your mom needs is for you to treat her NO differently, but spend as much time as possible, even though it will be hard since you will see changes in her that may upset you.. She will feel weak and tired.. but keep trying to do little things with her, as play cards, or read her a book etc.. There are numerous studies that show that mental health through treatment is an essential part in he****g! If you wanna talk shoot me a pm bro

    Wow thats fved up my mom tells me she has to go for a colonoscopy next month this morning and I read this thread. Chemo is literally a draining experience. You have NO choice but to support your mom, seeing you weak will not help even though it may be difficult. You HAVE TO be strong because it will help her.
    Stay strong, live strong.
