    Oh No

    6 months ago the "Oh No" came after a routine xray found a mass on the lung. When later diagnosed as lung cancer, the size of tumor suggested it had been there for at least 3 years.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Mom finished treatment. Now she is working on getting her strength back. Trying to get her to join a recovery program that will assist with learning exercises to recover from treatments, nutrition counseling, etc. Have not been able to convince her yet. Says she just wants to "forget" about the whole thing.
