Just found out

Last reply: 1 year ago

My Mother has been just diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she has been given roughly 6 months. It's too late for treatment. She has also just been diagnosed with dementia.
I have no experience of cancer or of a loved one being ill. I'm looking for advice from others who have been in the boat.
