    Oh No

    My mother was recently diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. She feels like she just received a death sentence. Initially, my thoughts on cancer was death. I know we all have to leave this earth but knowing that you have an incurable disease is devastating. I am scared but have hope.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My mother began chemo one week ago. She received 3 days of treatments. She has 5 more treatments to go every 3 weeks. No side effects as of yet. Her spirits are very low and I need some help with trying to keep her positive.
