Our expert says:
People who develop cancer or any serious illness, usually experience mixed emotions, including anger, and an awareness of how unfair it feels, with perhaps a desire to blame someobody, anybody, else for the situation.
Check with CANSA, the national cancer association, as they may have a counsellor experienced in helping the families of people with cancer, who in a session could help you work on plans to handle this as well as possible, and maybe later persuade your mom to get the counselling and support she probably needs.
And understand that her anger isn't about you, but about her illness and her fear
