    Misdiagnosed

    Oh No

    They told us her mass was benign and pushed her appoints into 2018!! I have discovered later that her biospy said cancer could NOT be ruled out. her latest biopsy shows she has invasive rectal adenocarcinoma.

    Other Care

    This situation is tough. I am sick down in southern california and my mom has my cancer and is just stepping onto the path i have been following and I can't physically get to her! Right now I am spending several hours a day arranging appointments and care and transportation for her. The hardest part is that she is up in the mountains and there is a shortage of services. I think our biggest challenge will be getting her a person to not only do some care providing, but also take her to get her groceries and prescriptions.
