hi. my daughter, Kimmie, is 23 and has just been diagnosed with "fibro lamellar variant" liver cancer. It is already in stage 4, having spread to her lungs. There are numerous tumors in both lungs, upper and lower lobes. She is in what seems to be denial and the family is wondering how to talk to her to make her understand the graveness of her situation, without sounding like we are already putting her in the ground. She is not taking care of her nutrition needs either. Do we need to just sit back, as she is of a legal age to make her own decisions...or is there some way we can kinda push her to be proactive? HELP PLEASE!
