Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully. Am so sorry to hear about what your mom is going through. At this stage, she would probably live for another 3-6months. I understand how difficult this must be for you. I encourage you to be strong and support her through out these very difficult moments.

I wish you the very best. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
