My name is Gina and I'm 23 years old. My Mum has just been diagnosed with HER2+ breast cancer in her right breast, and spread to the lymph nodes. She's going to be treated with chemo, a mastectomy and herceptin.
At the moment, I'm finding it really difficult to know how to support her. Are there any parents on here that have experienced having cancer - and could you let me know what I could do for my mum that might help? Or what your children do/have done for you? Obviously at this stage I'm just trying to provide as much emotional support as I can but as we move into treatment, I'd also like to ask about how I can help her prepare for chemo (both emotionally and practically). Any advice is much appreciated, I'm trying my hardest but feel like a fish out of water.
Thank you x
