Help for my daughter-in-law: triple negative, stage two breast cancer
My daughter-in-law, who is 52, was recently diagnosed with triple negative, stage two breast cancer. She has always been very healthy and has a young daughter, 12. I am not able to be there for her, as her dad, my husband, has dementia. The caregivers, dementia group has really helped me over 11 plus years.
My questions are from both me and her sister, who is going to be there for about 2 months:
How does she help lighten the mood? The only thing I’ve thought of is to watch a funny movie, for her daughter, but that’s also fun for adults, like “Ice Age”.
What can she do to help her sister pass the time (4-5 hours) during chemo, every week?
This chemo is expected to go on for 6 months and then a different chemo for 3 months after that, then a double mastectomy.
Can anyone recommend a soft cap that’s sort of flattering? I am trying to help from afar.
Please offer any advice you can think of.
Also, I don’t know if the cancer has metastasized. What support groups might be ones I can suggest for her?
