A few questions

My mom was just diagnosed with lung cancer and bone mets yesterday. Although I've known for about a month or so that this was probably going to be the case, its real now and I'm taking it pretty hard. I dont really have anyone I feel really comfortable talking to about it .My Mom is in her 40's so this is quite a shock. I'm terrified at what the future holds. She's meeting with her oncologist on Monday for more specifics and a treatment plan, as well as results from other tests but I was curious as to what the common treatment plans are for advanced lung cancer and if anyone could suggest questions she needs to ask her docotor?  Thank you

there should be caretaker groups available through the hospital where she is having her treatment.  Check with the oncology social worker. Also see if there is a Gilda's club or Cancer Support Community in your area.  This link to LUNGevity will connect to to a mentoring type program.
