CALLING ALL LC SURVIVORS!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay my friends, this is a CALL for ALL LUNG CANCER SURVIVORS to PLEASE COME OUT COME OUT WHERE EVER YOU ARE!!

I know we have more Lung Cancer Survivors on this board then just the few of us who post all the time. I think it would be so wonderful to see more lung cancer survivors here so we can offer strength and hope to all the NEW SURVIVORS that will sadly have to join us one day.

How many of you sit here and gain strength from reading other lung cancer survivor posts? I know I do!

I don't know what to say to bring more Lung Cancer Survivors to the surface, but I know we need each other and we need to share with others that there are a LOT MORE SURVIVORS in this world then just a hand full of us. Please click onto the Reply button and say hello and share a little about your journey with us.

THANK YOU ALL.

Warm and Gentle Hugs,

Connie

As Connie and Fay have requested, and Kasey and DonnaG seconded, I will stand up and be counted.

Stage 3A/B lung cancer, NSCLC, 17 hour surgery, removed 13 1/2 pound tumor; four rounds cisplatin and VP16, two rounds before surgery concomitant with 25 rounds of radiation, and two rounds after.

Chemo postponed a month when I collapsed/perforated my large intestine and had to go in for a colostomy.

I am a 5 year 11 month survivor.

Thank you all my dear friends@@!!!

Surviving in New Jersey! (yes, one can survive in New Jersey, although I was never sick when I lived in Pennsylvania!) :lol::lol:

2 months shy of 5 years thank you very much. Credit my husband, my therapist, my anti-depressents, this website, and yes my 20 year old who refused to let me give up the mothering job.

Carol here-reporting for duty as requested. I was scared senseless when I found this board. I am now here to help anyone that I can and to share what I have learned from my own experience and what I have learned from this wonderful board.

2years and 8 1/2 months. Since first dx; 15 mo. since second one. Stage 1B, Stage 1B OR State 1B, Stage IV. I like the first approach better. It's unclear if the second tumor was a new primary or not. My VA oncologist said yes; the ones here don't know.
