there is something you can do. You can enjoy what time you have left with her. You can make memories with her and be there for her. I would find another doctor and get a second, third and fourth opinion. They told me that my mother would be dead in less then a year, and didn't know why I was bothering to put her through chemo. I found a new doctor who believed that he could help her. it has been thirteen months now. It has not been an easy road but she is alive and fighting.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
