    Hi, I read that you are on this site, or at least they gave notice of you. I know how you must be terrified right now, and I want to share with you that 10 years ago, I also was terrified. Late stage ovarian cancer...surgery...chemo....and on and on for 10 years. I am a living testimonial that you can live with this. I live here in Aurora, and if you would like to talk anytime, just let me know. I am doing great, and lead a very normal life. God bless you. Kathleen

      my husband has lung cancer small cell we found out by chance the dr just wanted to do a xray because he hasnt had one in awhile (copd) they found the mass in his right lung right on the air way. So we did the bioptsy and he was told he had small cell lung cancer. Well 4 weeks went by and he started swelling they thought it was pollen.REALLY!!!! So one day while on his oxygen I noticed him swelling alot arms, face and chest and was not able to breath.. took him to the ER they admitted him but while in the hosiptal he got really bad not being able to breath me suctioning him out yes me NOT THE NURSE... He was put in ICU and when I say the Drs dont givr you no hope please beleive me they were upset that I would NOT sign a DNR allI heard was !.he wont make it. 2. he"ll never breath on his own 3.sign hte DNR.. Long story short he my husband pulled the breathing tube out.yes your reading that right. I was passed MADD at him. but he is home now goes to radition 5 days a week will be getting his third set of Chemo the end of the month but hes ALIVE not back to normal but HOME. I have to help him shower dress and help him with things but SO greatfull he is HOME they said he wouldnt make it but GOD has the final word.. So please never give up. Thw battle is HARD but its your fight and if life is worth it to you please fight we have a llOONNGG road ahead but with the grace of God and wanting to fight for its worth every moment. The things that i dont understand is the states receeivrd billions of $$$ from the tabacoo company why isnt the people thAT have LUNG CANCER getting any help??? All our retirement money is going fast Im still working when I can but NO HELP is out there.
