I don't know anything about this and am scared to read anything. It is so big to take in. My mum told me they found something in her breast and she is going for an appointment tomorrow, then various therapies probably chemo and a mastectomy. I am terrified and don't know how to think about this or take it in. My mum is the lynchpin of our family. She takes charge. To have something like this happen makes me afraid, she has always been strong. If I tell her to slow down at all she doesnt listen. She thinks she will take 2 days off for each chemo appt and be fine - is this likely? I don't know what to expect. I feel helpless and powerless. I want to help her but don't know what to do. She is 57. The worst thing is tomorrow is her birthday. What an awful present to have. Can anyone tell me what will happen? Will she be OK? She says after a year and the treatment she will be fine. Is that right? She says several people she knows have been through this and are now OK.
