    • I have been an advocate since September 2011, when my uncle was diagnosed with Stage IV lc. I joined LUNGevity as a volunteer event coordinator in 2012 and became a full-time staff member in 2014. I am grateful to interact every day with other people who are dedicated to and passionate about helping to spread awareness and get lung cancer research the investment it deserves. This is a photo of me and my uncle the day I got the job offer from LUNGevity. This fall, we will celebrate 5 years of survivorship! Lauren -- Digital Community Manager

    • Hi ryansmith, I am very sorry to hear of your wife's diagnosis. It is very difficult to find out that someone you love is fighting cancer. One of the best ways you can help support her is to learn about adenocarcinoma. LUNGevity has several resources to help you and your wife navigate her diagnosis. The Lung Cancer 101 section of LUNGevity's website has a section dedicated to adenocarcinoma: https://www.lungevity.org/about-lung-cancer/lung-cancer-101/types-of-lung-cancer/lung-adenocarcinoma Here is a link to download LUNGevity's educational booklet on adenocarinoma: https://www.lungevity.org/sites/default/files/file-uploads/adeno-brochure-020516.pdf And this is a link to LUNGevity's Caregiver Resource Center, which provides resources specifically for people who are caring for a loved one fighting lung cancer: https://www.lungevity.org/support-survivorship/caregiver-resource-center Please keep us posted on your wife's progress and let us know if you have questions. We are here for you! Lauren -- Digital Community Manager

    • Hi Apoorvamaniktala, I am sorry to hear about your father's diagnosis. My beloved uncle was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with brain metastasis in 2011. While nothing can prepare a man and his family for a lung cancer diagnosis, he faced his with determination, hope, and strong support from family and friends. Early on, my uncle underwent several rounds of radiation and had a few procedures, including stereotactic radiosurgery, to remove the tumors and lesions in his brain. They were able to successfully remove all 8 tumors. They discovered that he has the ALK mutation, and he went on Xalkori (a targeted therapy drug) for over three years with very positive results. He recently switched to Alcensa, a stronger drug, more as a precautionary measure than an absolutely necessary one. This September, we will celebrate five years of survivorship. In the past five years, he has seen his youngest son graduate from high school and college and his oldest son get married and have two beautiful children. His only daughter is welcoming her first child in just a few weeks. It is very difficult to watch someone you love fight cancer. While we wish we could take his pain and undergo treatment in his place, we know that he has to do that on his own. But my family has rallied around him and given him the love and support he needs during difficult times. He is grateful for opportunities to connect with other survivors and I am grateful to connect with other people whose lives have been affected by cancer. Though no one's stories are exactly the same, it is inspiring to talk to people who are on a similar journey facing similar obstacles. I hope that you find invaluable support and make many meaningful connections through LCSC. Please keep us posted on your father's progress. We are here for you! Lauren -- Digital Community Manager

    • My wife was facing some health issues which got serious with time. When we went for diagnosis, doctor assumed it be the cancer and recommended CT scan. Report illustrated that she is having multiple ground nodules in both lungs. Doctor told us that she has Adenocarcinoma and as the GGO's are in both lungs, it is certain that both are affected. We were just shocked to know that it is the advanced stage of cancer that she is going through.
    • I was diagnosed with cancer about 3 years ago and am stage IV.
