Denise Richards is taking care of mom !

Denise Richards is hunting for a bigger home so her ailing mother can move in with her. The actress' mother, Joni, is battling cancer and now the former "Bond" girl wants to invite her parents to live with her and her two daughters. Richards tells In Touch magazine, "I have decided to move to a larger and more secure home so my parents can move in with me, and my mother can be closer to her treatment center." The actress' mother, 53, was diagnosed with kidney cancer three-and-a-half years ago, but her condition has worsened in recent months.
Richards adds, "Helping my mother battle cancer is one of the hardest things I've had to do in my life. Her health and well-being are my main concern right now." The star has put her Hidden Hills, Calif., home on the market, and her parents have moved to Los Angeles from San Diego to help Richards house hunt.
