Someone close to me had radiation treatment and something involving a needle needle. She is in her early forties. The lump on her chest has a scar about 12 cm long. What is the risk of her dying?

    Not knowing anything about her or her cancer it is difficult to say. She may look as if she is dying because chemo can make you not feel very well. Losing your hair is NOT the look you want to have either! Turn your thinking around about her. Think of this as being a tough time for her while she is going through the treatment. This is helping her get rid of any cancer cells that might be lingering in her body. Don't think of her as if she if going to die, think of her as this is going to help her live a good long life. We are all doing that right here on this board. Be positive for her sake, she needs everyone's support right now. She WILL be ok. Take care, Sharon

      Thank you very much. She has such a positive attitude and I admire her for that. She also has 5 kids so she kinda has to show a positive attitude. I will stay positive about her and about everything that is going on, thank you again
