    Be gentle when you move or touch her. Massage her back. Check her diapers and change them when needed. Rub lotion on her skin and wipe her hair and forehead with a warm damp cloth. Read her books she read to you when you were a kid...

    In other words, the usual stuff...

    The Government of Canada is funding research into dandelion root. It is very promising. Because of our national health care system the government does look into this to cut health care costs, unlike big Pharma. You can get dandelion root tea from a health food store. At least 3 cups a day, you can sweeten it with honey. A man age 72 diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma was not able to be helped conventionally, went home drank Dandelion root dea and was in complete remission 6 months later. Also studies on CoQ10 are promising. This is something we have lots of at age 20 but almost none at age 80. Also, and it doesn't hurt to relax, Melatonin. Again something we have loads of till we are 40 then it drops to almost nothing. Not sure where you live but Vitamin D3 drops are essential where we live in Canada. A lot of cancer patients have low vitamin D, which they actually test for here. The units are 1000 you should have about 6 of these a day if you have cancer.
