Hello @cehunt57

I appreciate you sharing about your daughter's upcoming cancer treatment. It must be difficult for you to see her facing these health issues. On Connect we have discussion groups that deal specifically with breast cancer. I think you might find them helpful. Here is the link to those discussions, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/breast-cancer/.

In these discussion groups you will find many others who are dealing with breast cancer and follow up treatments. I would like to invite @trixie1313, @roch and @auntieoakley to this discussion. As they have all had experience with breast cancer.

What are your most pressing questions or concerns about your daughter's diagnosis at this time?

Theresa thank you for your response. I have found some of the links you mentioned and others (information, support groups etc.) to share with my daughter. My greatest concern is that upon initial diagnosis she was encouraged and told that she she was Stage 3, treatment and Hope available unlike Stage 4 when there would be nothing that could be done but keep her comfortable. When further diagnostics moved her to Stage 4, I was terrified. It has since been clarified that Stage 4 means this is incurable (it will eventually win) but there is treatment (chemo) to try to hopefully kill whatever is there now and hopefully stop the spread to still more areas (remission). It will be a lifelong (however long that is) to “keep it at bay”.
I am a Christian and person of faith. My daughter belongs to God and He loves her more than I do. I don’t know why He is allowing this (book of Job). He has His plans and reasons (Jeremiah 29:11). It will all turn out for good (Romans 8:28).
