Hello Birchbark26

My daughter was diagnosed with stage IV de novo breast cancer 6 months ago. Today she had her first CT scan since starting treatment. Hoping the scan will show that the cancer is shrinking. She has liver, lung and bone Mets. She is very independent and has kept me at arm's length, except for the first couple months after diagnosis. She lives alone, works full time and has no significant other. I'm having trouble knowing what to do to support her because she wants to do everything alone.

Hi Stromat63,
