Anyone else here parenting a child with a terminal illness? We just found out my daughters cancer can't be cured.

I am so so sorry for your news. I just can't imagine being faced with this, and there are just no words...

We had only a very short time (days) where we knew my wee boy wouldn't make it, and he was very much younger and in PICU already. There was a Mother on here a while back who was in the same situation as you though. Operamommie? Maybe someone else will remember who is friends with her?

I really hope you can find some support and advice during this difficult, but precious time in you and your daughters life. Many hugs.

I don't have experience with this but I read your post 4 days ago and I've been thinking about you, your daughter, and your family ever since

Thank you...it's a very lonely, scary situation we're in. We can only wait and see what happens. The worst part is, if they can remove the tumor, odds are it will just come back.
