Hi all, I am new here. My name is Gigi and I am 29 years old. 

About a year ago, my father passed away. He had colon cancer. 
just last week, my mother was also diagnosed with this cancer. I am in shock. I am going through the hardest time of my life and I don’t know what to do!

my mom is basically my life...I have no siblings and my Dad had been out of the picture for years and years. I am truly devastated. 
We are supposed to go for her colonoscopy on Thursday so they can do the biopsy and tell us what treatment options we can start with. 
I am so scared. any advice please?
