Please help. My 23 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with a form of liver cancer and it is already in Stage 4. I believe she is in denial and we don't know how to talk to her about it. Any suggestions?

Hi this is loulou. I am really sorry to hear about your daughter. I can not even imagine the emotions you are going through. But can I ask you why you think she is in denial? loulou

Dear Mom,

I'm a 27 year old female who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. All I can say is that you just take one day at a time. There are days when I can't get out of bed because of the depression. Other days when I want to live like I don't have tomorrow. But the main thing is to hope, even when things look rough. It's a heavy burden to bear, and my mom has become my best friend because of this. She's just there for me even when I won't listen.
