A friend recently came to me in tears with the news that her mother, who is in mid-stage Alzheimer's, had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. My friend was beside herself with grief, mostly because she didn't know what to do. She felt the full responsibility of making the decision to treat or not to treat her mother's cancer was on her shoulders. I had a few suggestions for her, but only she and her family can decide what the next best step is.
