I don't really know what motivated my mom to continue with her chemo because she had a very hard dosage of chemo. I couldn't imagine being as sick as my mom and saying yep, three weeks from now I'm going back in. Going to sit there for a couple of hours and let this happen to me all over again. It was just really important that my mom chose to try and put on a happy face sometimes when she was around me and trying to make the best of it for herself. I would definitely recommend answering all of your kid's questions, and if you're a kid asking questions if you're really concerned about anything.
