    My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer at the end of Feb 2012. The cancer has metastasis to her bones and brain. She is unable to use her leg leg and arm. She just finished two weeks of radiation to her brain, upper and lower spines and left shoulder. She experienced very bad side effects, but better now. Her next step is to do IV chemotherapy weekly. I am wondering if someone can offer some suggestion for chem results or their experiences. Anything would be helpful.
