I am new to this site, but I just wanted to post some fears and concerns I am having. I am 32 years old and my mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer about two weeks ago. She had a CAT scan and bone scan and the doc was concerned with the bone scan. She went for a PET scan and he saw some stuff that worried him, now she is having a bone biopsy done. I am so scared for my mother and don't know how to handle all of this. It is happening all so quickly and the suspense of not knowing is killing me. I cry constantly, I have a two year old son and I can't even function. I would rather have the cancer than my mother. I love my mother so much and can't even imagine life without her. You know the doc first said, stage 2 and now we are not sure what stage she has b/c he is not certain if it has spread to the bones. How am I to function through the days not knowing how long my mother is going to be on this earth???? I am so scared................
