well this is new to me so i guess ill just tell you a little about me 🙂 my mum was diagnosed with lung cancer in november 2010 it had already spread to the lymph nodes in her neck by the time she saw the specialist i was with her and they told us that it was terminal and inoperable it was such a shock as i always thought she'd grow old and we would have shopping trips and afternoon tea outings shes only 59 now at first i thought ok lets tackle this head on i researched everything i could on lung cancer treatments and outcomes but it made things worse it wasnt giving me any good news. i quit my job and started caring for her fulltime i went to her chemo treatments which she breezed through it was such a blessing she wasnt sick at all to look at her no one would ever know she had cancer. when her chemo finished the tumours had shrunk it was much need good news but one month later she started having little fits and muscle weakness and her speech was funny her dr suggested she have a brain scan and i knew then that it had spread she had radio treatment to ease the symptoms which it did and now its like she's to scared to move incase she sets of a fit so she sits in her chair all day and thats whats hard to deal with that such a amazing active woman can just sit a watch tv all day it breaks my heart every day.
