Is she in hospice? Or is she getting any treatment? Are you living with her or have other living arrangements?
My heart goes out to you. My mother died from BC in 1962 at age 37. Your first step is to contact her MD about in home nursing care or Hospice. Get a visiting nurse once a week at least. If she has a lot of pain, ask for better drugs. Get her financial records together in case she needs Medicaid. Our prayers are with you, keep us updated.
