My mom was diagnosed with AC 10 days ago. It's a 13cm moderately differentiated squamous cell carinoma tumor. She's 69. Very scared at all that she's facing- especially at her age. This forum and all of you are invaluable. I'm tentatively planning on taking a leave of absence from work to help my 78 yr old stepdad with her treatment care. I'm trying to prepare for the worst and hope she doesn't experience that.
We are anxiously waiting for PET and staging results.
I never thought we'd be on this journey. I'm a cancer survivor of 16 years, but my treatment for thyroid cancer was nothing like this.
I just want to thank each one of you for sharing on this board. I wouldn't know where else to turn. I feel helpless and heartbroken.
