    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My mom had just retired and my parents had both given up smoking about 6 months prior to her diagnosis.

    More Birthdays!

    Celebration

    My mom was originally given less than a year for survival... she took almost 4 years of her life back from cancer :-)

    Decision Point

    When the cancer spread to her brain and gamma radiation was no longer effecient... it was time to stop the chemo/radiation and enjoy the rest of her life without the side effects....

    Hospice

    Other Care

    Hospice was a word I used to mix up with Hostels... I had no idea the impact it would have on my life. It was nice to have mom home for her final months...
