I thought it best to double post here cause ya’lls my girls.
My wonderful mom, Who is my absolute best friend in the whole universe, got a call from her Dr. today…and was told she has breast cancer. I am a wreck.
Thankfully they caught it early and there is still much to be done. My mom must be made out of granite because how she is still st work, I don’t know.
Bee love and prayers are appreciated.I am a wreck

My mom had ovarian cancer and I’ll be honest, watching her go through the chemo and everyhting was by far the most difficult thing I’ve EVER had to do. My mom is like a superhero or something so seeing her like that just broke my heart. However, she has now been cancer free for over 2 years and is better than ever. Keep your head up and remember that at times you’ll have to be the strong one for her. Prayers for you both 🙂

My mom just got surgery for her breast cancer a couple weeks ago. She had chemo first, surgery, and in January she’ll be starting radiation. Hang in there!! You and your family have my prayers. Your mom sounds like a powerhouse of a woman working during this time (like mine! She never stopped working throughout treatment), I’m sure she can beat it!!
There’s been so much new research on breast cancer that doctors say treatment gets better every 6 months. Even the worst symptoms of chemo can be curbed with various medications doctors can give her. Just keep thinking positive thoughts and be there for your mom in any way you can!

I am so sorry to hear that, but we’re going to think positvely! Glad they caught it early. I have 4 friends that are breast cancer survivors and they are living proof that women are kicking cancer’s ass daily! Keep Mom’s spirits up and tell her to fight like hell. Hang in there, Sapph.

Keep thinking as positively as you can- scientists and doctors are working on better treatments nonstop. Since it was caught early, she has very good chances of recovery. It is so scary when your parents get sick…my dad is just about out of the woods from his multiple melanoma tumors so I know how those worries about our loved ones can take over. Your mom will fight through it! Hugs <3

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Congrats on your engagement and sorry to hear about your mom. Will send major good vibes her way, and hope that she recovers quickly. Sucky timing, but hopefully your good news will cheer her up some. And boy does she sound like a tough woman – still at work! She’ll be in my prayers!

**hugs**…I just went & still going through this with my mom, she had a bilateral mastectomy with deip flap reconstruction followed by procautionary chemo….it sucks, its hard, its draining in every way you can imagine, but you know what…you’ll get through it.
My advice- get a cancer planner, sounds weird but it kept everything together, your ma is going to have what seems like a never ending agenda of doctors appointments and medical records which she’ll need to have available for every doctor along the way, this planner (i think it was called cancer 101 planner) kept me sane during a very insane time. it holds everything from appointments to contact information. i took care of my mom and all things related to her breast cancer…get the planner!
I know you posted for support, the best support i can think to give you is to pass on any of the useful knowledge i gained while helping my mom through her sickness, the good the bad and the ugly.

My mom passed away when I was 22 and I helped care for her the year leading up to it. I wish someone had told me it’s ok to ask for help, and to ask for lots of it! I felt like I had to be strong and keep on going. I was in grad school, I was working, and I was caring for her all at once. It was too much. Hindsight is 20/20, and I should have put school on hold and cut back on my hours for work. I just want to say not to be embarrassed or ashamed if you can’t handle as much as you usually can; be kind to yourself and nurture yourself! And if people offer help, take them up on it; most people genuinely do want to help during times like this, but often don’t know how. By accepting a ride somewhere, or a meal, or even just a visit over a cup of coffee, you’ll feel supported and they’ll feel less helpless in the situation. Feel free to PM me any time if you want to talk to someone who’s been through caring for a sick parent. I know a lot of people who haven’t been there can be compassionate but can’t empathize.

Sending positive thoughts your way. My mom had kidney cancer but luckily they caught it on accident so early that they were able to just remove the kidney during a surgery that had to be done for her gallbladder anyway and it was as if nothing ever happened. Hopefully she will healing soon.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: **BIG HUG** My aunt just finished her last rounds of chemo and radiation and was diagnosed with breast cancer over a year ago. It is really hard, but there is no doubt in my mind that you can do this. I think keeping a positive mental attitude is really important- especially in front of your Mom. You have your FIANCE to help your family through this and you always have the bees!! It is very good that they caught it early- you and your mother are in my prayers!! <3
