12 months ago, March 17, my mum thought she had a chest infection. She was given antibiotics but it didn’t clear. After a chest X-ray it was confirmed, my beautiful mum had lung cancer. It has been a rough road for mum but she is such a strong lady. after chemo, radiotherapy, getting sepsis and pneumonia, mum ended up in ICU and was given 48 hours. Mum shocked everyone, she came out of ICU, came home and in November 18, was given the all clear.
Unfortunately, mum had small cell lung cancer which is aggressive and fast growing. In February 19, mum became poorly again with dizziness and sickness and a scan revealed that it has gone to her brain with multiple tumours.
