SadiesMom Posted March 14, 2005 Share Posted March 14, 2005 We just found out Friday that my mom has cancer. Liver and Lung. She was a smoker and a drinker (beer) but Im not sure how that affected it. She is going to see a specialist this week and will be starting Chemo soon. She doesnt want anyone to know except my dad, 3 brothers, my husband and my brothers wife. So while I do have people I can talk to about it, I cant confide in my friends about it, and Im having a hard time talking about it with my brothers since they are all dealing with it to. She doesnt want any of us upset, she is trying to stay positive... I was wondering from those of you with caner or have family members with cancer, what are we in for? will she be able to keep it between just us if she is going through chemo? will she definantly lose her hair? How sick will she get from the chemo? How can I help make it easier on her? Im not good at saying the right things, and right now all I can think to do is bring her her chocolate milkshakes that she loves and rent movies to watch with her. but I dont know what to say....
