if you want your mother not to suffer then just full-fill her wishes & try to keep her happy by avoiding radiation & chemotherapy. cancer once spreaded to brain less chances of recovery.

My friend of 82yrs has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer Pelvic bone cancer , breast cancer , lower back cancer, skin cancer, stomache cancer and spots on her liver. she has had radiation for the pelvic bone cancer and is on Zobone drip treatment once a month. The doctor told her family she has between 12hrs - 14days to live. This is her second week and she is much better, in high spirits and walking unaided. Is this remission? Must we still expect the worst?
