Sorry I'm not sure if this is the right spot to post.
Last week my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer that has spread to her liver and bones. This has come as a complete shock as she is only 51 and has never had any illnesses before and breast cancer does not run in my family.
I am very reliant on my mother for everything, she is my best friend and we do things (shopping, hanging out ect.) 3-4 times per week. She is also the head of the family and organises lunches for birthdays, hosts christmas and has my sister, her boyfriend, my brother and my dad still living at home and does everything for them as well.
If anyone ever has a problem they go to her.
My daughters (3.5yrs, 14 months) both idolize her and are extremely close to her.
I just feel lost and don't know what to do. I cry over everything since finding out but have to hide this from my girls.
My oldest knew that her nana was sick in hospital however now she thinks she is better.
I don't know what to tell her or how to help my mum. I feel so selfish, all I can think about is losing my mum even though she is still here.
Can anyone offer advice or experience with this kind of situation. I am at an absolute loss.
