Hi. My mom has been a survivor of breast cancer for 10 years. This April she found out she had 3 tumors on her spine. She has completed 6 weeks of radiation. Every month she goes to the doctor to recieve shots to promote strength in her bones. She has lost an immense amount of weight. She hardly eats and only gets out of bed to use the restroom or shower with assistance. She was receiving physical therapy in the beginning but it is over now. My question to anyone out there is if someone might be going through or has gone through this ordeal and if they can shed some light for my mom. I know when she had breast cancer, she recieved phone calls from breast cancer survivors reassuring her that everything will be alright. Now she has none of that, nor the strenghth she had when she had breast cancer and seems to not know what to expect. I also was wondering if there are any ideas for food that I can make my mom seeing how she can only eat very light. Thank you.
