My mother who is 67 years old has just been diagnosed. It is very scary for us all since she is a very petite woman to begin with. She did 5 days of chemo initially and now is in her 2nd week of radiation which she will have a total of 5 weeks. At the end of that, they will do a round of chemo again. Then they will look into surgery. I have been very traumatized by this since we are so close. I immediately did all kinds of research on the web and it made me even more upset. Why is the prognosis so short on this type of cancer. Reading all of the very positive stories on this site has been a great gift. You all are angels on earth to a stranger. Thanks!
