My mother had breast cancer 5 years ago. Had mastectomy, and a whole round of chemo. She got her scans every 6 months religiously. And she remained clean of recurrent cancer. In June 2003, she was dx with mets. to brain and lungs. She recieved chemo and full brain radiation. At first she responded to the treatment, but now it appears the cancer is growing again. My father is not dealing with this very well at all. It is hard enough knowing that I am going to lose my mother, but now I feel I will lose him too shortly after. I have such an awful feeling of gloom and dread. How do I help him? He is a very private man, and won't even ask for help if he needed.
