      Hi Veronika, I am going to also post this on Facebook to see if we can find someone with experience to share their insight with you. Hang tight!

      My dad's girlfriend has the mutation. She is on Tarceva and it is working remarkably well. You would never know she had lung cancer. The only side effects are some acne and she also has some issues with running to the bathroom. Other than that, its been working since the first day she started.
