My Mom was just diagnosed with stomach cancer

Mom is 82 and very sharp. We just met with her physician and after an endoscope, PET, and the biopsy we found today that she has stomach cancer in the upper portion and it has penetrated the stomach wall and has involved several lymph nodes. She is in a weakened state and the Surgeon is wary of surgery. She is scheduled for another CT and then we will meet with the oncologist and she will decide what to do from there. Is there anyone out there that has a family member with this type of cancer at this age?
