Sorry to hear the news Dan, my prayers will definitely be with you sir! My aunt beat cancer almost 10 years ago with the help of some great doctors. I wish the very best for your mother in her fight as well! In the end it's going to be the cancer than wishes it never messed with your mom!

Very sorry to hear this. That has to be tough, especially when it's your own mother. Thankfully, they caught it when they did. Hang in there.

Thanks again everyone. Tuesday morning at 8:30Am she goes to Surgicare Center at St. Lukes hospital in Cedar Rapids, Ia (Top 100 Hospital in the nation) My mom called me tonight bugging out. Which I would be as well if I was in her shoes. She says "I've waited so long to be a grandma and now I wont be around for them" Which in return I start bawling my eyes out because shes got 6 grandbabies all under the age of 3. She also told me while she is in surgery if the cancer is to much and the Doctor wants a decision she can not make that I was to make it for her. So much crap running through my head right now its unreal. Can't sleep. IM PRAYING that it did not make it through her Lymph nodes and is still in the early stages of 1. Not 4.. I'm such a mama's boy that I seriously wouldn't know what to do if the test came back Tuesday that it was worst then they expected.. Just bumming right now.

Damn, Dan, it'll be alright. We're pulling for your Mom just as much as you are. Stay positive, just believe everything will be alright. No doubt cancer is one of the scariest things, but it can be beat. I don't blame you one bit for being upset by this, anyone would be. This is life, throwing you a nasty curve. Just stand in there and don't give up. She'll be alright.

Hey dan, I didn't really want to post this at first as I did not want to make my comment about me. But I have just gone through the same thing with my aunt and my mom. For now it looks like everything will be fine. I also had another aunt that had breast cancer (awhile ago) and is happy and healthy now. I just wanted you to know that there is a great chance for things to work out very well. Keep your head up brother and I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

I am sorry to hear of your mom's diagnosis and she and your family will be in my thoughts tomorrow. The most important thing you can do for her is be there, hold her hand, give her a reassuring hug and make sure she has comfy recovery clothes. Tell her she is stronger than she realizes and she will find strength she never thought was possible. She is a fighter, a survivor, and a strong women. And, even though I don't know her, we are survivors together and I am sending her tons of positive vibes.

You never want to hear anything like this, so I'll be hoping for the best for your mother and your family Dan. I really do hope it hasn't spread too far. Cancer is the worst. I just hope a cure is found sooner rather than later.
