      BuckeyeShelby hit it on the mark! If she is mentally alert why in the heck isn't her oncologist discussing this with her??? And I don't think that is legal to do unless she has given up her power of attorney to someone else. But of course discuss this with her immediately, she is a grown woman and needs to be treated like one, just tell her the truth as gently as you can. She needs to be able to make plans and prepare. Although again it should be her oncologist doing this and talking with her about her diagnosis and her options. If she has a strong will to live and if she isn't happy hearing about hospice and wants to fight, please immediately take her to another oncologist and get a second or a third opinion because that doctor could be wrong. And the will to live is very powerful! But if she is ready to move on, yes I have heard wonderful things about hospice, they do everything possible to keep people comfortable and happy in their last few months.
