I am posting on this website at 1 o clock in the morning because ever since I found out my mom's cancer had come back, I am not able to sleep anymore. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer 2 years ago. She received 6 rounds of chemo and all indicated the cancer was gone. She was in remission for almost 2 years until early this year, when we found out the cancer had comeback and spread to her stomach and close to her belly button. She had chemo again, and after another 6 rounds of it, we found out the chemo didn't work.
As y'all can imagine, she, as well as the whole family was devasted by this news. The doctor told her there is nothing more they can do, but I jst know in my heart that there' has to be something else we can do. She is 62 and is very strong and brave but the latest news have taken a toll on her. She is now very depress and has lost all hope. It breaks my heart to see her like this and I stay up at night crying my eyes out because I feel like if I loose my mon, I will also die with her.
My parents are pastors and we all believe with all of our heart that God has the last word, but everyday I see my mom loose her hope. What can I do to make her feel that she needs to fight for her life? Make her understand that there is still hope for her?
If anybody has tried different chemos and haven't worked but still survived this horrible disease, please help me with some advice on what to do. I am not marry yet and don't have kids and my biggest dream is to have my mom with me on my wedding day and that she can see my children grow up. Please keep my mom and my family in your prayers as we go through this difficult time.
