Thanks for sharing this. So sorry to hear about your struggle and that of your mother. We just lost a neighbor friend who was diagnosed with stage 4
stomach cancer and given 3 to 6 months to live. That was December of 2016. We helped as best we could and are still helping the neighbor's wife.
Chemo treatments did, obviously, extend his life more than 6 months, but the quality of life was awful the last 4 months or so. Very sad to watch.
Odd thing was, the VA, which was his primary care facility, forced him to do the Chemo regimine, telling him alternative treatments couldn't, per the
rules, be offered up until he had completed the Chemo followed by a course of radiation treatments.
FWIW, my wife who worked in the medical field confirms that cancer, once exposed to atmospheric oxygen does explode. I guess thats true.
Where I live, its pretty much a retirement area. Mostly, everyone's just waiting for the word that they got their cancer. When I get mine, I'm going
to Mexico, assuming that option isn't outlawed by this crappy government.
Sorry for your loss, and thanks.
