my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer to her lymph node brain liver and bones. This was back in April 2014 she was 43 she is now 44. She got blood clots from her port and was in the hospital for two weeks in May of 2014 then she had two different chemos and her cancer shrank and her bone cancer went away then she had radiation on her brain and she got rid of the two brain tumors then in the beginning of 2015 she went on horomone therapy and it didn't work all her cancer came back accept the brain he put her back on chemo pills and in august she had a small stroke (t.i.a) caused by a tiny hole in her heart and a blood clot went through to her brain then the chemo pills caused her cancer to become stable then in December 2015 the xeloda stopped working and her onc put her on vinorelbine iv chemo she has had a new picc line put in and after 2 rounds she has gotten sepsis and is recovering in the hospital. It just one thing after another and I just feel empty her husband is to scared to take care of her so at 23 I am my mothers caregiver I am not around any family or friends and have no one to vent to and she often takes her anger out on me I know she doesn't mean it she has 7 kids and a step son her kids range in ages from 5 to 24 and five of them are under 1. It was so unexpected she went to the dr for arm pain and came back with stage 4 cancer .in the pastel most 2 yeas I have watched my strong young mom deminesh to being bed ridden And in and out of sleep. I know she is scared and so am I why does someone who has so much to live for get this horrible disease without even a chance.
