    I'm currently feeling overwhelmed. I'm one to three caregivers for my mom who was diagnosed with cancer. Our cancer journey began in 2009 when my mom was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The Drs were very optimistic because "they caught it on time" so she underwent hysterectomy and radiation treatment. She was in remission for 2 years and remained symptom free. Earlier this year and to our surprise my father was diagnosed with small cell carsinoma in February 2012. He fought the good fight for 6 months but has since passed on. We barely had time to grief when my mother's doctor informed us that my mother had recurrent endometriosis and now my family and I are now heading to MD Anderson in hopes that we can find more options (medical treatments) for her. this has been a very difficult journey for all of us and we are just looking for words of encourangement that will help us keep moving forward.

      I'm sorry your having to go through this. I know exactly what that's like. After being done with my 3rd cancer diagnoses. and finished my treatment, 2 months later my Dad started a fast downhill slide after his prostate cancer became agressive after 14 years, he passed away 2 months later. Then, Mom was diagnosed with an inoperable lung tumor two months later, we lost her 8 months later.

      Me three times, Mom and Dad, cancer sucks.

      Hope you get by as best you can, let us know if we at Team WhatNext can help with anything.

      Hi NoBluess, this truly sucks and I'm really sorry you and your family are having to go through this. I myself am going through additional treatment for cervical cancer that has recurred and metastasised. It's hard to see anything positive in all of this but please hang in there. Your mom needs you the most right now. I know as a caregiver it sucks to feel "helpless". My family and friends have told me how much they wished they could take this "cancer" away, that they wish they had magical powers to make this horrible disease disappear from my body. Cancer XXX me off and makes me so angry that not only am I having to go through this but it's hurting my loved ones too. Just please stay strong for your mom, she needs you. Be her rock when she needs to go through treatment again, laugh and talk and enjoy each other. Every day we get to spend with our loved ones is a gift. You are in my prayers. I ask God to give you and your mom strength and courage to face this ugly disease as you go through treatment. I pray that God fills your heart and mind with peace and that this cancer gets removed from your lives. Please know that I'm here for you. Sending hugs your way.
