Im a 16 year old girl and my mother has stage 4 Melanoma. She just turned 40. Shes very young and dying very painfully and slowly. I hate seeing her like this and I dont want to lose her. Theres so many things I want to do with her but I am unable to. She has to stay in a bed at all times for the fact that she cant move much. Shes on so many medications. She went to the NIH in maryland to try the kemo treatment and lost all her hair. The cancer only grew. She has it in her leg by her groin. She gets bladder infections all the time and has a stint. I just cant handle seeing her like this. Why should a 16 year old girl lose their mother? My grandma tells me that its all my fault that shes dying. I dont understand why its my fault? Please help. I need advice...
