Dear "Stress", I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's diagnosis. I cannot imagine how stressful this must be for you, especially hearing that there is apparently nothing they can do to treat your Mother's condition. This is a time for you to be brave, to give your Mother all the love she deserves. It is, however, also the time for you to make arrangements for your Mother to receive the best palliative care possible. It is suggested that you contact Hospice nearest to you for advice and support to ensure the continued care of your Mother. (MCH).
