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.
