Kia Ora Ivymelisha,
thank you and welcome to the cancer Chat forum.Sorry to hear of your mum’s diagnosis.
It must be very hard for you as she is your best friend and her only surviving child.
Here at the Cancer Society, we sometimes can link you up with someone who has been through a similar diagnosis and treatment.
You are welcome to call and talk with our nurses on 0800 226237 about linking you up if we can, or about anything else you might like to discuss.
Cancer Society offices around NZ have support staff you can talk things over with. Sometimes in situations like this counselling can be helpful to assist with decision-making, and learning coping strategies.
You are really welcome to call the Cancer information nurses 0800 CANCER (226 237) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Naena, Cancer Information Nurse
