I just found out my mother (71 years) has mouth and throat cancer. She lives 4 hours away (by car). My father, to whom she is still married, is 75 years and in relatively good health. I am also married and have young children (ages 9, 6 and 3) so I cannot leave my family alone for extended periods. I feel helpless. What can I do to help? Any suggestions for how I can care for her while she undergoes treatment?
