Oh, that's awful. Very sorry. It is very treatable and curable nowadays. I really hope that she does well.

Similar boat. 18 months ago. Mum still having treatment. V difficult. Hang together. Shock lasts about 6 months if I remember correctly.

I found being mega practical was the thing that helped me (might be a personality trait!). Loads of good treatment for breast cancer - stay as positive as you can.

ok, she has the choice of the lump removed and radiotherapy, or the whole lot off, she is also private

Does she know any more about what type or anything, ff? Have they advised one course of action or another?
