Hello Roo29 and welcome to you and your mom. I would suggest that you try the chemo. There is a chance it could work. These are the chances we have to take. You do not want to suffer from the "what ifs" syndrome! If halfway through the treatment she is not doing well, you can than decide to stop it. I was a caregiver for my dad he was dx with esophagus cancer first and then it went to his liver. He beat the ec, but not the liver cancer. I am glad we did try the chemo treatment for the liver cancer, if not we would be regretting it. Try it, it may work!
Keep in touch, we are always here for you.

I also have breast cancer that spread to my bones and now to my liver. I have a very large tumor in my liver, i am only 2 years younger than your mom. I am on Chemo right now, have been for 4 months. This is not a death sentence so i am not sure why someone told you to let her die, that is chilling. I am trying everything to stay alive. There are so many treatments, even alternative, that she can benefit from. Please stay positive and go with the chemo treatment. Let me know how she is
