We were told one month ago today that our five year old son had a soft tissue sarcoma, and that it had spread to his lungs. Our pediatrication basically told us that there was nothing that could be done. He needed to have chemo that day. We were totally shocked. It has only been a month, and I feel as if I have been on a rollercoater, what should I do?
