My Mom has colon cancer and now in her 3rd round of Chemo. This is kind of frustrating for her, she had the actual colon surgery 3 years ago. Then last year they discovered a tumor that had started in her pelvic area and spread down to consume her right thigh, recently they removed what they could from her thigh, it now has spread to her left hip and now we are mid way through the 3rd round of chemo and she simply wants to give up, she is tired of being poked and proded every day. To make matters worse she recently fell and now has a cast on her right leg. I don't know what to do anymore. I have 2 younger brothers who looked to me for answers. She seems to be vanishing before my eyes and I don't know what to do or say to her anymore, she does not want to go anywhere or see anyone. Any suggestions? She refuses to go to talk to a therapist or join a cancer group.
