EmpowHER members - We've received the following "Ask" and I'd appreciate your help in supporting this daughter as she supports her mom.
We think that my mom is possibly sick with ovarian cancer, she just told me today. She has known that there was a cyst on her ovary about five years ago, she kept up with it, until she could not afford health insurance any longer. She has all the common symptoms and actually has a dr appt, May 12....I guess my question is, how do you deal with something like this? I am only 26 my mom is 52, and frankly she is my best friend....I cant wrap my fingers around any of it, how do you deal with someone whom you love so much and watch them suffer? We are not sure if that is what she has, but I feel it in my heart...
