I am so scared as my 80 year-old Mom has been diagnosed with a tumor on her temple that is malignant. We live in Michigan so she has been sent to University of MI hospital for removal. This type of cancer has roots, so they are utilizing a microscopic surgery as well as a plastic surgeon. The microscope will ensure all the roots are removed. Has anyone had this? I guess it can be disfiguring, and my mom is scared that she will be permanently scarred. I laughed to myself about this; after all, she IS 80. My best friend humbled me when she said "but, she's still a woman!" So true. She has survived Hodgkin's Disease, breast cancer and uterine cancer. Now this. Any advice? I'd love to cheer her up; she's my hero.
