Welcome to this site. Sorry to hear of your diagnosis.
My mother was diagnosed about a year ago with stage 3a lung cancer - adenosquamous tumor. She had three lymph nodes affected. She was a non-smoker and harbors the EGFR mutation.
She had chemo, surgery and then radiation. It has been a year since her diagnosis and she is currently cancer free according to her last scan. Something to be thankful for indeed this year. However, she still deals with some of the side effects from treatment(s).
There is hope. Just listen to some of the long term survivors here of stage 3 lung cancer as proof of that. Rest assured new treatments/combo therapies are on the horizon.
