ludwig80 Posted October 15, 2012 Report Share Posted October 15, 2012 My ma calls me tonight and informs me that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm super bummed for her and feel rather helpless now that I picked up and moved 1500 miles away not to long ago. They luckily caught it really early so now it's just waiting it out and finding a proper treatment. When she was explaining the situation to me, I realized I know so very little about it and the treatment process.I felt bad I couldn't offer any advice except offering support, understanding and care. I was literally speechless or in shock- I don't know. I just wish I could have offered more. They want her to start on some pill treatment first and see how that goes. My ma is a bit resistant due to side effects and I can understand but I imagine it's imperative to treat earlier rather than later. I'm sad about the whole thing. On top of that my dad's battling his own health issues. Even though they supported me leaving and following my passion/dream, I now feel really bad for going and pursuing. I hate all these health issues, they're so damn frustrating. If anyone has any advice, I'd be more than happy to lend an ear. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
