    Just diagnosed!

    Oh No

    Mom got the word on a cellphone call from the nurse while she was out shopping. She was the one in the family who was always healthy. No one in the family had cancer before. Out of the dark!

    chemo or not?

    Decision Point

    Chemo is poison...or, is it? Should we go the healthy way? Is this the right thing to do? How do we help her with this decision? Dad says do everything you can to fight it. Kids say, "What do you want to do, Mom?" Nobody knows...
