    Welcome to the group and congrats on beating the beast. Early diagnosis is the most important thing. I too survived stage 2a adenocarcinoma in my left lung in 2001. Chemo & surgery, no radiation. I've found members here to be helpful with questions or concerns I've had in the past ~ not so much recently since it's been over 20 years since my recovery but I'm always happy to offer any information I can. Not that I'm the most knowledgeable person here.

    Welcome ~ sorry to learn of your diagnosis, but you are in the right place for the best treatments. I had adenecarcinoma in my left lung and ended up at IUPUI, which I really do think is the best facility anywhere. With chemo and surgery they cured me in 2001. If you have questions regarding your diagnosis or treatment there are several knowledgeable people on this site who are willing to help in any way they can ~ don't be afraid to ask. Good luck in your battle.

    Sorry to learn of your situation. I pray for the day this country realizes that competent medical care is a basic human right. Why is every major industrialized nation on Earth able to make it work except this one? And I truly believe that we, as a country, owe our veterans far better than they receive. I hope he's being treated at Simon Cancer Pavilion?? I drove 3 hours each way to get there because it is the best. That's also where I took my daughter when she had AML. It was a late diagnosis due to the fact that a GP missed it earlier, so she was in bad shape when she arrived at IUPUI. I am totally convinced she would have died anywhere else. I will be mentioning you and Steve in my prayers. Best of luck to you.
