I'm new to this and its very hard to tell my story without crying. My mom, who is 67 and my best friend, got diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer in March last year on my birthday. She went through a thorancentesis to get the fluid off her lungs and also in July a debulking surgery to try to get most of the cancer out. She went through a few more rounds of chemo then got put in remission right before Christmas. On my birthday again, this March her cancer came back. She is now going through Chemo again. I am so scared that I won't have my mom much longer. She is a very strong woman and her faith in God and the love of her family has kept her going through this, however, she is very weak now and tries not to show it. I have this gut feeling that I need to make everyday count with her now. I wish this feeling would go away but I can't. I feel as if this is really aggresive because she was only in remission for 2 months. I wish this would all just go away.
