    Decision Point (Continue treatment or give up): My mom struggles daily if it is worth going through the treatments and dealing with the side effects for her life to be extended by 6 months t a year especially if she will be in treatment for 80% of the time. She now needs to decide in the next two weeks if she will continue treatment and move forward with add'l chemo.

    Radiation (External radiation ): My mom had 9 radiation treatments and handled them fairly well except she was very tired and it impacted her desire to eat.
