Stage 4 breast cancer

Posted by

Hello everyone. I am here because my daughter has stage 4 breast cancer and her first chemo has not worked. She had to have a blood transfusion and given oxygen. She just turned 50. The world has shattered around me. Looking for any bit of advice based on your experience and knowledge. Where to look and who to contact. I will do everything in my power to bring relief to her. I am sure there will be an enormous support and experience available here. Once the treatment get on the right path I will devote myself for raising money etc

 Please please tell me anything you know.
