We just got our genetic testing results and my mum is KRAS G12V mutant. I have been looking online and on this forum but have decided to stop for the sake of my mental health: I don't have a great grasp of scientific papers, and what I read is grim.
Anyone with a bit of good news or perspective on the subject want to chip in?
[EDIT] I should add that we're not US-based, we're in Europe (Italy). Might consider flying to the US for treatment but my mum is very weak at the moment so probably not ready to relocate relatively long-term
