Lung cancer

My mother is diagnosed with 4th stage lung cancer. She has undergone 6 chemo cycles. She is unable to sleep and has intolerable pain in chest area, she couldn't even lay straight , she is facing this problem from last 6-7 months. The high opiods like morphine were also unable to make her sleep and decrease her pain. I need a solution so that she could win the fight over cancer as well as the stabbing pain.
