Your mom is probably very scared, feeling out of control of her life, and in pain. It may not be possible for her to be happy right now, but you can give her comfort by being with her as much as possible, and by sharing details of your life with her. If you can make her understand that the increasing limitations of her body have nothing to do with your love for her, that will be a great gift, and a great comfort. The best thing you can do for your mother is to let her know that she's valued for who she is inside, and that her terrible disease does not define her. Your mother is a lucky woman to have you in her life. Stay strong, and share your strength with her. The very best of luck to both of you.

Try to do something to let her know that you care for her. Make her a card, or sing her a song. Do something that you used to do together when she was feeling better.

All you can do is be there for her. Emotionally, mentally, and physically. To help support her. She knows you can't cure her, but it will really help her to know that your with her to help her every step of the way!(: I'll be praying for you all. (:
