Hello out there. I am a Mom of a 20 year old with his second kind of cancer. He first cancer was Ewing sarcoma we found it his seinor year in High school. Auguest 2007. Now because of the treatment we recevied that had made the ewings gone for now. He developed Myelodyspla and now needs a bone marrow transplant. His younger brother is not a match however they have 60 matches. We go to a new dr the end of this month to talk about treatment.How do I deal with my son going from a childrens hospaital to an adult hospital? How do I give him the suport he needs as an adult and still give him the love he needs as a child? 20 is so young. The treatment is in another city 8 hours from home. I will have to put my job on hold and that is hard becasue I am a single mom with no help. My youngest is in High school and my son get a little money from the state. How am I going to live for the months Treatment will take with no money coming in? Any one with words of wisdom for me I can use some.
Thanks from Jon's Mom Ilene
