    To do chemo or not....

    Decision Point

    Her cancer has decreased by 80% but she is not going to be able to have surgery do her age and copd in the other lung. Plus she has a prmenant shunt from her head down the right side of her body (where the cancer is) due to a brain anurysm 14 yrs ago. She was told that chemo may or may not help. No way to know for sure but she opted to do it.
