I am sorry to hear this latest news about your mum and these tumours. Have you and your mum talked about seeking a further opinion or more even from other doctors regarding different chemo's or other treatments? I hear what you are saying about what they said to your mum at MD Anderson, and to be honest, I couldn't comment on that as I have no personal experience of this treatment as my dad never had it. Hopefully others will be able to chime in and share their thoughts and experiences of this.
I did a search for you here on the site and came up with this. I hope that some of the posts in this link will be of use and interest to you.

I really wish that I could help some more here or offer some more insight on this to you right now. I can so understand your mum saying that she is not ready to give up and that is good to hear, so maybe seeking further opinions will help her right now? Please let us know what happens on Thursday from your mums meeting with the doctor and what is said. And please also know that we are here for you always, you are not alone.
Any advice or comments I give are based on personal experiences and knowledge and are my opinions only, they are not to be substituted for professional medical advice. Please seek professional advice from a qualified doctor or medical professional.
