My mother in law was just diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma Grade 3.. she is also a triple negative. She is 69 years old.

She is having a PET scan soon and will have her port put in at the end of this month. Chemo will start shortly after.

We have ordered her a wig but I'm not sure what else we need to do to prepare. I've looked up all the information the dr's have given me and printed it out for mom to understand. she is being very brave but I want to make sure I can do my best to make this journey easy for her.

If you have any good tips, please share.

I'm currently battling lyme disease and reading long pages of info is very difficult but I will start reading through the intro on this forum.

Thank you and hugs to all the people and their family fighting cancer.

Hello & welcome to Healing Well. I am so sorry to read of your mother in law's recent diagnosis. Unfortunately this forum is very slow. I am not sure if you will find the info here that you are needing.

One of the members in the prostate cancer forums highly recommends a forum called Apparently it is a very busy site & you may be able to connect with someone there that has this type of cancer. By no means am I trying to run you off from HW, but because this is such a slow forum I would think you could get some current info with that group.

I happened across your post & wanted to respond. I do hope that your mother in law has the very best outcome.

Take care.
