    One of the things that has been a tremendous relief and help through it all is being able to ask for help. Knowing that others want to help you, and letting them do so.

    I can't figure out how to comment on your comments, so am just posting anew each time...

    In terms of trials, there are lots of places that can help you.

    Just to start -- and some of the pharmaceutical companies have their own sites too and their own people helping you find the right trials.

    Hi,

    I am 45 with SCLC, diagnosed December 2010. It metastisized to my brain, which is how it was found (I was having vertigo, and got an MRI, which was like swiss cheese).

    I had chemo and radiation and was done with treatment in February 2011.

    I am currently undergoing Cyberknife for some activity in my brain, but it is very treatable -- we are zapping spots as they become active in my brain.

    I have been incredibly fortunate and am grateful for every day!

      I haven't talked to anyone about Cbyerknife yet. I am on my third kind of chemo. This presented last year down in my girl parts. I had a lump down there they thought was an infected gland and turned out to be this wonderful disease. My doctor told me to look for clinical trials but I don't have any idea what to look for!

    HI Suzanne,

    I just joined.

    I am 45-year old, SCLC, diagnosed 12/10, never smoker.

    Latest scans showed some activity in the metastases in my brain (it had metastisized there before I even discovered it). I just posted my initial post about the diagnosis.

    Keep believing and having positive strength and energy.

    It is your mind that is going to help you beat this!

      You are right. The mind can do you in. I find that so. I believe in the day time, but at night I think too much. I have made all my plans, and I am ready to meet my maker, but I am 89 almost 90. I have lived.
