My heart and prayers are with you. I know your pain. My mother passed from breast cancer a little more than a year ago. I can give you a few
suggestions though, especially if she opts for chemo.
High Dose IV Vitamin C
-- If I had it to do over again, I would absolutely insist that my mother had received high dose IV Vitamin C.
Insurance will cover the expense with a doctor's recommendation. It can also be obtained at private establishments out of pocket. High doses can
also be taken orally, but bioavailability is exponentially increased by IV. More information here:

-- Similar to a basic stock or broth. I used chicken, lots of garlic and onions and broccoli and potatoes. Slow simmered in the
crockpot overnight. There are several recipes online; here is one recipe from Dr.
-- Supplements of CoQ10 have been helpful for reducing pain and inflammation, and avoiding weight loss in cancer patients. It might also

Finally, the best meds in the whole wide world: Love, laughter and music. Stimulate the senses in the best ways and give Mom some warm fuzzies.
I don't want to overwhelm you. I'll stop here. Feel free to PM me if you have questions or if I can help or if you just want to rant and rage and
vent. I can't make it all better, but I can give you a cyber-shoulder to cry on.
One more thing: Make sure the doctor knows exactly what you are doing. I would always have my mom put her supps in a big ziploc bag to take to the
doctor to show him.
Good luck and God bless.
