I am shocked to hear the news but my grandmother is suffering from a cancer of the peritoneum, this is sad and alarming and I need to know how she is going to be later on. She is not at an early stage of the illness and it is going to be difficult to help her according to the doctors and she is already 84 years old. Thanks.

Hello
I would say you must prepare for end of life care for your grandmother. This is a rare cancer, and involves the lining of the abdominal cavity. You must ask her doctors what the next step is for her, and what care package she will need. Do you have access to hospice care? Take care and sincere best wishes to you and the family.
