    Welcome to our community! You can get a lot of good feed back from the community or if you just need to talk and vent, we will listen.

    I am 73 DX with Stage IV NSCLC metastasized to brain in 2012. Lobectomy done and was given 1-2 yrs of Quality of Life only. Onc said I would never be in remission or cured. I began Tarceva Oct. 2012 and it kept me stable until the middle of 2017. I tried Gilotrif then Iressa without anything positive happening. Began Tagrisso Nov 2017 and it has me stable once again.

    I am glad you are here.

    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started on the help you need right now.

    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. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall. Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help you find any information on the site. After you have an opportunity to look the site over and see what great things there are here, we encourage you to invite your friends, family or anyone you know that may be helped by the connections on WhatNext to join the site also.
