Hello, My mother had breast cancer 6 yrs ago. She had a lumpectomy. 1 yr ago we found out she has a tumor behind her breast bone. months of radiation and then chemo, finding out that the chemo done nothing.( except make her sick and lose all her hair) Now she is getting chemo once a week. My mom is 62 yrs old and was very active, shes not like my mom anymore at all. I cant stand seeing her this way. She did not even know what was going on because she told her doctor to only tell her what she needed to know as far as treatment. I called her doctor the other day to find out that it has spread on her ribs and down her spine. My mother has NO insurance and she is between the ages of getting medicare and makes 50.00 to much over getting medical assistance.
