My Girlfriend and breast cancer

23 May 2020 00:35

My Girlfriend is currently 16 Years Old and been told that she has until August to live because she was really depressingly diagnosed with breast cancer in February, I Dont Know what to do and i really want to try everything to help her through and help her survive, i really cant see her go and the doctors say it would be a miracle for her to survive, I need to knw if there is any posible thing that could atleast increase her chance of survival. She is really way too young to die and i dont now how i will even be able to carry on knowing she couldn't, this has been very upsetting beyond any sort of belief and for her to have bad breast cancer at the age of 16 is just unbelievably cruel, I am trying everything possible i can do but there isn't really a lot i can do apart from help her feel so overly loved and help her remain healthy and happy all the time.

Hi, 

I understand how you feel in some kind of way. I'm struggling t come to terms ith my nan's diagnosis too. 16 is such a young age, and I send my condolences to you and your girlfriend. 

In order to help her, just be around her as much as you can, laughter is the best medicine they say. Allow he to do things that make her happy with bth you and other people as much as she can. Try having a look online to see if there is anything more that you can do. There are a lot of home remedies out there, just make sure they don't interfere with any treatments she may be having. 

Hope this helps Happy
