I'm new to this whole thing, so bare with me lol
I am 19 years old. my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer on November 18, 2011. A fairly new diagnosis. on the 21st of November she went into respiratory failure and was on a ventilator for 6 days. she came off of it like a fighter and after 6 weeks of in and out of the hospital, she is home. my mom just turned 52 years old. She had one round of chemo and it destroyed her body. so there is no more treatment they can do. she also went into kidney failure so she needs dialysis three times a week... mom is enrolled in the hospice program.. I hate watching her go through this.. she is my best friend. My dad died when I was 14 so I am her care giver and I wouldn't have it any other way. cancer is such a terrible thing...
