My mum has secondary breast cancer. She got diagnosed in 2019 with stage 2 and following an operation to remove the very small affected area and some rounds of radiotherapy she was given the all clear. Come April 2022 we received the devastating news that breast cancer cells had spread to her lymph nodes in the neck and chest. She agreed to fight it with chemo for us. She has so many health complications we didn't realise how debilitating and gruelling the chemo would be. So by December she could no longer walk due to joint problems, the past few weeks she can't eat, sleep or have much quality of life. Started tablet chemo a week ago for her mouth to erupt in the most awful way full of sores and ulcers. Her body has had enough. We were told today she is dying. No more chemo, I almost hate that more than the cancer. It's 1am and I'm lost.
excuse the long winded post but I had to get that all out.
