Very sorry to hear about your mother. She is about my age. I know how bad it was when I lost my own Mom to cancer. She must have done something right to survive Stage IV for six years. Did she have surgery or treatments? I will keep your Mom and your family in my prayers. Its rough around the holidays to have such a sad loss, I know. Hugs and prayers!
