    help needed in choosing treatment options

    Hi, Hope. I was diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma in 2016. I had surgery to remove the upper lobe of my left lung. I followed that surgery with cisplatin and alimta. Your husband is in a good place given it has not spread to his lymph nodes. I didn't have any of the mutations so I wasn't a candidate for targeted therapy. Your husband should have some options given his results. Hang in there. We're here for you.

    I have hope that we'll continue to see new treatments which, at the very least, help us manage this disease like a chronic disease. My grandmother was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in 2009 and died in 2010. She didn't have nearly as many options as she would today. Just since my diagnosis in 2016, we've seen new and expanded treatment options. I no longer fear that a lung cancer diagnosis is a death sentence. We have a long way to go, but it's getting better each day.
