My mom was recently diagnosed with cancer. I can’t even begin to describe the shock I felt or how my heart just sank. In an otherwise healthy person with no family history, this is not something you ever expect to happen. My mind immediately jumped to so many different conclusions, and I immediately wanted answers. Is she going to beat this? How did this happen? Why did this happen? What are her chances specifically? Did we catch it early enough? Are the treatments going to work? Are they enough? What else can we do?
The questions that arise in your mind at a time like this are endless. The answers are limited.
Needless to say, she’s devastated and the whole family is struggling to cope.
