Mum refusing anymore treatment

My mum was diagnosed with primary liver cancer back in Feb 2017. Her quality of life was pretty good, and was in very little discomfort. We did 4 rounds of chemoembolization and her tumor shrunk a little but never quite enough. On a recent scan they saw a smaller lesion (2cm) below the original 8cm tumor. They did alchohol ablation for it. But since then my mum has not been feeling well. Her quality of life has not been great. Her appetite has gone down and she is now refusing anymore treatments. I am very heartbroken. This all happened in a matter of weeks. She was fine literally back in August even with the tumor.

I am flying home to be with her. I have taken a month off of work. I know this isn't enough time. But I feel so torn as to what to do.

You might want to concider CBD OIL. It will make her more comfortable.
