My 23 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with cervical cancer, it has spread outside the cervix. She is going to have radiation/chemo for the next six weeks and then a week of internal radiation. She is very scared, we all are. She is so young and clearly doesn^t deserve this. Can someone tell me what to do in the way of her diet and emotional support. And does anyone know of her chances? I guess I want to be told she will be fine after this treatment. She is in stage 2 of cervical cancer, they will also be doing a cat scan to see if it spread anywhere else. She has a 5 year old daughter and well wants to keep her life, during treatment as normal as possible. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.
