    My mum has overian cancer stage 3. She's weak so don't think she can have chemo. We hope she will be home next week. I'm not sure off plan as their are a few things the doc has said about maybe to then have chemo. The who thing is horrific she doesn't want to die and says things that make my heart break about wanting to do I don't know what to say or think it's so hard.

    Hi and welcome to the Marie Curie Community. We’re sorry to read about your mums diagnosis and everything you’re going through.

    I know what you are going through and want to give you just a little hope. My mum was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in2019. She was very ill and also had blood clots on both lungs. She had major surgery and then had a course of chemo. She would have been in remission for 3 years now so please don't give up hope. Try to stay positive around mum and draw strength from previous battles she may have won which may make her more determined to fight. i stood by my mum through it all and through my work knew that people do survive so had hope. If you need to cry do, if you need time on your own or with someone to talk to make sure you make that time. Plus talking to mum about how she feels and you feel (honesty) will help the fear. 

    Stay strong and I wish all goes well
