    O2s, I'm so sorry. I can't imagine having such a young child going through this. If you're not aware, there is a caregiver Zoom meetup that you can join to get support. There is a nonmetastatic meetup today for caregivers if you want to start there. The next metastatic caregiver meetup is February 1st.

    Hugs to you, and you are not alone.

    O2s - I'm so so sorry to read about your daughter. There is so much support and valuable information on this website.

    My thoughts, and prayers (if that's ok) are with your daughter and you as well. {Hugs to you both}

    O2s, I’m so sorry to hear this. 20 years old is so young to have MBC. I hope you will both find comfort and support from this community.

    The first few months are very tough, but many of us feel that it does get easier to wrap your head around the diagnosis with time.

    My Mom was a huge help to me through my chemo, surgery and radiation. I will be forever grateful for the time she spent at our house. Your daughter is lucky she has you.

    O2s I am so very sorry that your daughter and family are going through this. As a mother we just want to ease our child's pain so I can't even imagine how you must feel.

    As the others said this is a great community for support and information. I hope you find some comfort here or even a place to vent when you need to.

    Hugs and prayers.
