Hello,
my mother is very ill she suffers from a generalized cancer and the doctor was talking about a palliative chemotherapy.

I want to learn a bit more before the start of the treatment, is there a chance for her to live?


How long?


I'm desperate and deep inside me guess that I already have the answers. Thanks.

Hello
This sounds as if your mothers doctor is trying to make her as comfortable as possible. She is living now, and you must make the most of every day with her. Palliative Chemotherapy is a way to maintain your mother, but is no cure. Sincere best wishes and good luck


Take care.
