      I have been through the surgery (squamous cell, floor of the mouth) and it was very dramtic surgery, I survived that and then a year later the cancer came back, so now i have been though radiation treatment and now in a waiting (limbo) state. I would be glad to answer any of your specific questions, but I need to know more about what your mother in law is going to have done, but there are people on this site who do care and find sharing a good theraputic tool to help ourselves get through this awful time in our lives
      feel free to ask anything you want

      Thank you krbrowndog they have decided against surgery because of her age. We started radation last week and today is first day of kemo just three days of radation she is very weak at times she does have the same kind of cancer but hers is in the gum, cheek, and salvatory gland and in the jaw bone thank you again for responding i feel so alone i have family but i am sure they are tired of hearing me talk so try to keep quite around people but i am really afraid i wont be able to do this
