My mother in law was just diagnosed with lung cancer in one lung. After a recent scan, it was discovered to also be in her lymph nodes. They can not operate due to the size and will therefore be giving her chemo and radiation first. She is a very private person and I am unsure how to help. She was so considerate through my cervical cancer treatment last year, that I want to be there for her! Please respond with ideas or examples of what helped in your situations. She is 64. How difficult will the treatments be? Thank you for your help!
