Is there anyone with words of encouragement I can send to my mom who was just told she has bladder cancer?

Bladder cancer. In most cases it can be managed successfully with medications like a chronic disease. A minority will have more aggressive cancer. First stop smoking.
Mostly cureable. Most cases of bladder cancer are low grade and have a good prognosis if treated early. High grade and advanced bladder cancer may require extensive surgery. However, again most cases can respond farably to numerous combinations of surgery, radiation and /or chemotherapy. A second opinion from a uro-oncologist may be helpful.
