Having parents now in their early 90s, I think it is important to consider your Mom's age and stage in life for just the factors you mentioned - family and friend support - for any serious illness. Also, given the usually complicated side effects which can come with any treatment, another fair question would be her stamina and ability to travel for any out of area treatment. Quality of life at her age would be of utmost importance to me. Prayers for your Mom.
