    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma , tumor was found in the outer part of my lung , size of a softball. Had surgery to remove it and also 1/3 of my lung . Have received 6 weeks of radiation and now going to start chemo next week. Really scared but doctors feel it's for precautionary reasons and hope to stay cancer free. Anybody else with a similiar story would love to hear it Thank you. Life sure changes in a blink of a eye!!!
