My Mom has been suffering with not being able to breath for 4 years now. A month ago they diagnosed her with Aspergillosis. She was never tested for this when she lived in Florida. They never did a biopsy and diagnosed her with stage 4 lung cancer. She went thru 70 treatments of radiation in Florida. When she came to visit me in California in December, I insisted she go to a Doctor out here. They put her on oxygen right away. She was at Loma Linda Hospital a couple times because she had pneumonia. They did a bronchoscopy with an ultrasound and a couple of other tests where they took fluid to culture from her lungs. We were told from the pathology reports she did not have Cancer she has this fungus in her lungs which is causing all her breathing problems. We need a local support group. She and I both need a support group. She has been depressed and very sick still. She doesn't want to leave the house and it's taking a toll on her emotionally and physically. Does anyone know of any groups in Riverside, CA or The Desert? Any advice? Does diet help? She really likes her sweets and I make her eggs and spinach and beets and everything I think may help her. We are uneducated with this disease. If anyone has any advice, please reply. Thank You and God Bless!
