Sorry to hear that you are having to deal with your mom having such a serious beast cancer.

You didn't mention what tx she is receiving, but I hope it will, at the very least, prolong her life.

My best wishes to you both...

MY MOM HAS METASTASIC BREAST CANCER TO HER LUNGS AND BONES AND I ALSO DON'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY IS THAT SHE HAS FAITH THAT SHE IS GOING TO BE CURED, BUT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF HER DIAGNOSIS IN OCTOBER/2009 I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS ADVANCED BREAST CANCER AND THAT THEY WERE GOING TO PROLONG HER LIFE NOT CURE. I SAID SHE HAS FAITH, WE SHALL WAIT AND SEE.

She is Stage IV Breast CA.  It has only spread to the lungs at this point?  Any chemo/radiation treatment at this time?  If so, how is she responding to treatment?  
Yes, I hate to say it, but her chances are 50/50 if she beats this.  Has the physician given her a prognosis?
