I'm new here. My mother was just diagnosed with cancer yesterday. I'm still reeling from the news and can't bring myself to discuss the type of cancer or the stage just yet . I'm not in denial, I just can't right now. I'm located in California, USA. I've been looking through different chat and support rooms for a couple of weeks now and so far, this site seems to be very loving, caring, supportive, and positive. My mom has a strong faith in God and seems to be taking the news pretty well. I'm not sure if she's doing it for her family's sake or if she really is "okay". I'm concerned about watching her suffer and wither away right before my eyes and I'm going to need all of the support I can get. I'm so sad and devastated.
