    Hi, my mother got diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in November 2019 5.5 months ago. She had major surgery to remover tumour and remove a lot of the cancer that had spread but not quite all. In hope the chemo would zap the rest. Except she’s been terribly sick from chemo and spent more time in hospital than out. I’ve been caring for my mother who lives 4 hrs away from where I live. I left behind my teen kids to take care of mum. My dad has a illness aswel for the last 15 years and become very addicted to his prescribed opiates and over the years has become very abusive. It’s been a very hard journey trying to care for my mother and cope with the abuse from my father. I have tryed alsorts of areas for help to only be failed. My father now has isolated my mother away from me and I had to return home. No longer being able to see my mum and support her in the way I should be able to. I’ve become quite depressed about it all and very saddened and feel quite lost.
