    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves.

      My wife has adenocarcinoma was a smoker and has been on Tagrisso about 4 months. We have not seen any progression and have seen some shrinkage of the cancer areas. She was EGFR positive and was there for a good candidate . So she is doing well for now.

      That's what I'm wondering if my daughter will be a good candidate for it as well! I know how hard Chemo was on my husband, with him I only had to drive 30 minutes each way to and from the Cancer Center, my daughter has to go like 1-1/2 hours each way. It really worries me as she is so weak right now just going through Radiation.
