My wife has breast cancer. What do we need to know?

My wife found a lump and then, within a few days, another lump. A biopsy has confirmed that it's cancer and it is at least stage 2 because it has reached the lymph nodes. She will be starting chemotherapy soon with surgery to follow. We have a lot of confidence in her doctors but could use suggestions on how to deal with the day-to-day stuff.
Other stuff that might be relevant: We have two children, both teenagers. Family is not close enough to help. My wife does not have many close friends. She is likely to be on disability for awhile so finances will be an issue.
